According to Chris Taylor on 11/28/2005 6:30 AM:

The reason I mentioned it is that I'm told that the `` syntax is
deprecated (and has been for some time), at least in scripts, ergo it
makes sense to be moving to the newer one.. You're right though, it is a
lot easier to read and nest, and vastly easier to read it when nested..

Nope - POSIX has not deprecated ``.  See
 And portable scripts, per the rules in the autoconf documentation, MUST
use `` instead of $().  Based on the body of existing scripts that use ``,
I doubt that POSIX will ever deprecate ``.

Fair enough :) I shall reeducate my friend on that point then.



Spinning complacently in the darkness, covered and blinded by a blanket
of little lives, false security has lulled the madness of this world
into a slumber. Wake up! An eye is upon you, staring straight down and
keenly through, seeing all that you are and everything that you will
never be. Yes, an eye is upon you, an eye ready to blink. So face
forward, with arms wide open and mind reeling. Your future has
arrived... Are you ready to go?
