scalar__0000OP is the concatenation of scalar and the expanded name of
`degreef' (which will change every time you run it). Put a space between the
two in line 5 (not counting blank lines) of your code below, and the parser
will understand the first one as a command and the second one as a parameter
for that command, instead of the whole as a command and = as a parameter for
that command.
