scrput `` in alias or function

Aug 16, 2008

I'd like to use the - undocumented - "scrput ``" syntax (which makes scrput honor leading spaces) in an alias or function definition. Unfortnately the alias or function definitions start themselves with a "`" so scrput simply ignores them. The same command works when entered directly in the shell.

Is there a way to escape the `` in an alias or function? ("^" didn't work for me)

In a quick test, this worked.
v:\> alias zz `scrput 0 0 whi on bla ^^s^^s^^sfoo`

v:\> alias zz
scrput 0 0 whi on bla ^s^s^sfoo
