Subject: `{prog args} versus `(prog args)
Date: Wed, 29 Dec 1993 21:34:08 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <9312300234.AA00241@vlsi.cs.caltech.edu> (raw)

          Happy New Year to everyone!

 Is there a "real" difference between
     ; x = `{prog args ...}      
     ; x = `(prog args ...)     

 The only difference in the text of the commands is
   braces versus parenthesis.
 Both conform to the syntax, and I cannot get them to produce 
   different results.
 Does anyone have any opinions when one is preferable to another?
