If you would like to use the local "TTT" in the program -aaa-, you
need to ensure that -aaa- knows its value. There are a number of ways
you could do this, including passing its value to -aaa- as a scalar.

********************
capture program drop aaa
program define aaa
	syntax, ttt(real )
	di in y  `ttt'
end

capture program drop TT
program define TT
	local TTT = 5
	aaa, ttt(`TTT')
end

TT
********************

To every ω-consistent recursive class κ of formulae there correspond
recursive class signs r, such that neither v Gen r nor Neg(v Gen r)
belongs to Flg(κ) (where v is the free variable of r).
