Default Referring to segment value without array syntax?

Is there a way to set a segment value without using multiple array syntax like this:

tmp['PID']['PID.4']['PID.4.1'] = "value";
The reason I'm asking is because I want to use external json file to configure where certain values are written. The json file could have something like this (I made up the syntax):

lastName : "PID.PID.4.PID.4.1"
This means lastName should be written into that segment and then in code I could just write:

tmp[settings.lastName] = value;
Is there simple way to achieve this?

Not all in one bracket like you indicated, but you could just write a function to do that.

Always include what Mirth Connect version you're working with. Also include (if applicable) the code you're using and full stacktraces for errors (use CODE tags). Posting your entire channel is helpful as well; make sure to scrub any PHI/passwords first.
