st: RE: Re: single quotes -- NOT!!!
The backtick is ascii code 96 (on my keyboard its northwest, shifting it
gives the ~ character, ascii 126).

Commands such as local foo = `bar' + 1
do not involve a pair of single quotes! On the left is a backquote, or
backtick -- usually in the northeast corner of the keyboard -- and on
the right is a single quote, usually on the double quote key. If you do
not use the backtick properly, no Stata program will work !
