Is that a curly quote character in your source code, or did it get
changed as part of posting to this list? Either way, you need to be
careful with your quote characters. Get a programmer's editor if you
need to (Sublime, Atom, VS Code, Vim, SciTE, etc, etc, etc), and make
sure you post as plain text.

(Also, if you have trouble posting properly using Google Groups,
switch to the mailing list - it's more reliable.)
