man bash and search for command substitution.


Quote:
Command Substitution
Command substitution allows the output of a command to be substituted in place of the command name itself. Command substitution occurs when the command is enclosed as follows:
$(command)
or (“backquoted” version):
`command`
.

.

It's been around in sh already, so it MUST be there. What shell and version do you use?
