On my screen, the right single quote after 3 in this line:

local x `3’

appears to be a different character from the right single quotes delimiting the other positional macros.

Dear all,

I hope I am just missing the obvious, but please help me why the code below does not parse the third argument after a tokenize. I am pretty sure I am doing standard things here. The relevant part of the trace follows.

- tokenize `varlist'
  = tokenize y t psc
  - error ("`4'"!="" & "`psc'"!="")
  = error (""!="" & "psc"!="")
  - local y `1'
  = local y y
  - local w `2'
  = local w t
  - local x `3’
  - ereturn clear
