$$SQX2

This is a transformation that can be applied to the substitution of content for both macros and macro parameters.

The value is modified such that all single quote characters are doubled up. This can be very useful if you wish to use the text in a rexx string which is surrounded by single quotes as rexx will in this situation treat the two single quotes as a single single quote that does not terminate the string.

It should be noted that under regina there is a limitation that a long string could break so I now recommend the use of "$$RX'" instead.
