         scalar 'al'='at'[1,1]
         scalar 'ak'='at'[1,2]
         scalar 'am'='at'[1,3]
         scalar 'ae'= 1-'al'-'ak'-'am'

and wonders what might be wrong. These references (and all throughout the program) must dereference macros with the left tick (accent grave) on the left, e.g.

         scalar `al' = `at'[1,1]
         scalar `ak' = `at'[1,2]
         scalar `am' = `at'[1,3]
         scalar `ae' = 1-`al'-`ak'-`am'

Unless the left ticks have been changed to apostrophes (') by the email program, they are invalid syntax.
