I'd like to save typing and clean up a program by
using
a local variable with conditions that evaluate strings
like below:

local 1 "whatever"
local if "``1' == "first thing" | `1' == "second
thing"'"
if `if' { ...

only I can't get the quotes or compound quotes in my
`if' declaration to resolve quite right.

Thanks for your help!
