Can someone please tell me how to define a local macro that contains literal single quotes? For example Suppose I want to do something like

local bull "count if `temp' > 0"

where `temp' is to be interpreted literally, not evaluated.

. local bull "count if \`temp' > 0"

. mac li _bull
_bull:          count if `temp' > 0
