str_get_sq

Returns the single quote (') character as a string.

Available in version 6.1.0 and later.

Prototype

	function str_get_sq (
	)

	return_val [1] :  string

Description

This function returns a one-character string containing the single quote (').

NCL cannot generate a single quote string using normal string assignment. This function gives a quick/direct way to get a single quote string.

The result of str_get_sq() is same as tostring(tochar(39)).
