Thanks, Nick, for several lessons. Both of your suggestions work
(i.e., forcing evaluation with `= ' and skipping the -scalar- step)
and I will paste both versions below.

Re installing -prvalue-, I am still confused. The only way I can
install is -findit prvalue- (i.e., -ssc install st0094-, -ssc install
spost-, -ssc install prvalue-, -net install st0094-, and other
variants fail). Maybe I should give up on resolving blind spots?

To get the latest and greatest version, do

findit spost9

prvalue is part of the Long & Freese suite of commands, which Long maintains on his own web site. Any other versions, including SSCs, are likely to be outdated. Once installed correctly, you should get something like

. which prvalue, all

c:\ado\plus\p\prvalue.ado
