Hello Daniel,

The "\" prevents macro from being evaluated, and thus includes the
reference, not the value into the local being defined. E.g.:

. local test "A \`B' C"
. di `"`test'"'
A  C

// ... later in the program ....

. local B "Zypsel"
. di `"`test'"'
A Zypsel C


Best regards,
  Sergiy Radyakin
