Dear all,

I'm not sure if this is a problem with the -genhw- command or the 
way in which I'm trying to use it, but would be grateful for any 
suggestions as to whats going on.

I have a load of genotype data for a whole genome screen and 
simply want to test each locus for Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium 
using the -genhw- command.  Since there are 370 markers I 
thought I'd use the following to achieve this...

tokenize d*
while "`1'" ~= ""{
	genhw `1' `2'
	mac shift 2
}

However upon execution I'm told that 

too many variables specified
r(103)

genhw works fine if I type in the variable names, but this is very 
repetative (boring and time consuming).

Can anyone suggest why this might be happening.

Thanks in advance for any help

Neil
