Simple $variables expand if they're in a DOUBLE quoted string
ex: "Today's Date: $DateVariable"

if i have a DEFINE literal    is there any syntax escapement to get them to expand (be replaced) in a double quoted string?

DEFINE  DAILY_MODE =1

echo "The mode value is  DAILY_MODE ";

otherwise:
echo "The mode value is ".  DAILY_MODE;

thanks

Stick with echo "The mode value is ".  DAILY_MODE;. Variable expansion is for variables and literals are not variables

Not that I am aware of or could find online.  I think you are stuck with option 2: echo "The mode value is ".  DAILY_MODE;
