Subject   st: assistance with syntax

Can anyone please tell me what is wrong with the syntax of the following command?

foreach pc of varlist _all {egen z`pc'=std(`pc')}

I get the error message "program error: code follows on the same line as open brace
r(198); "

I haven't used this command to standardize a set of variables in a long time, and have unfortunately maxed out my creative abilities to solve this problem. I'm using Intercooled Stata 8 for the Macintosh, although I'm pretty sure the syntax should be universal for this particular command.

Thanks very much.
