This sounds more like a bash question to me, but you can replace single quotes with \N{APOSTROPHE} or \x27. In bash you can do it like this:
$ echo 'aa'"'"'bb'; aa'bb

    [MidLifeXis]: Most likely it is a code that some undocumented system, hidden behind layers of IT, deep in the bowels of the building under the machine room floor, reads that code to keep a presence switch from going off. :-b
    [MidLifeXis]: I think I forgot "running on a farm of commodore 64, vic 20s, trs 80s, and apple ]|[e systems"
    [GotToBTru]: oh I know what it is .. but it is a number only slightly useful to me and of no possible use to our customer
    [MidLifeXis]: Whew - you just saved the free world. <o)
    [GotToBTru]: i guess it's a placeholder, the code will only fill it in if there is nothing else to use
    [GotToBTru]: but then .. if you have nothing to say, why not say nothing?
