I think there is a translation problem here. 3D is the ASCII code for =, 
so perhaps this program was moved from machine to another in a fashion 
that the text encodings were lost.

If translated properly, this would read 
if "`1'"=="?"{
which would compare local macro 1 to a question mark.

This is really mysterious, since the =3D has multiplied!
