st: obtaining the value of c(byteorder) in Mata

Forgive me if I'm missing something obvious here, but my understanding was that values of c() scalars were to be referenced in Mata using st_numscalar() and st_strscalar(). Yet while this appears to work for numeric scalars, it doesn't seem to work for string scalars:


. mata: st_numscalar("c(SE)")
1

. mata: st_strscalar("c(byteorder)")

. di c(byteorder)
hilo


Could someone point out what I'm doing wrong?
