st: I'll never understand quotes
Hello - could someone please explain why statement #3 below fails if I put
double quotes around `sdir', but statement #2 needs to have double quotes?
1. args gog sdir
2. gen str5 sdir = "`sdir'"
3. save gait_`gog'_`sdir', replace (works)
3. save gait_`gog'_"`sdir'", replace (fails)
