Can you please change this behavior?
Code:
v:\> echos foo^t & echo bar
foo    bar

v:\> (echos foo^t & echo bar)
foo    bar

v:\> do i=1 to 5 (echos foo^t & echo bar)
foobar
foobar
foobar
foobar
foobar

Shouldn't you be doubling the carat in the last example?
Yeah! Thanks! But it doesn't make a heck of a lot of sense (the memorable kind of sense) ... I don't have to double %s but I do have to double ^s.
Code:
v:\> do i=1 to 5 (echos %_second^^s & delay 1 )
40 41 42 43 44
