Subject   st: how to input a numlist into a matrix

Dear all,

For a program, I want to input a numerical list into a matrix.
I want to store the list in a local so that I can modify it easily. Namely,
I'm looking at something like:

    local nlist "10(5)90 91(1)99 99.1(0.1)99.9 99.91(0.01)99.99"

but then, if I use:

    tokenize "`nlist'"

and try to see if i'm doing the right thing by:

    di `1'

i get an invalid syntax error.
Furthermore, I'm not sure how to get the size of the numlist so that I can
initialize my matrix with:

    matrix A = J(1, size_of_numlist, 0)

Can anyone give me some suggestions?

Thank you,
Radu Ban
