Dear all,

I did some data cleaning and was generating variables. 
Doing so I found out that expressions can not contain more than 66 
dyadic operators (return code 130). This is quite frustrating in large 
data sets when, for example, using replace with many if conditions. 
So to debug one hase to split command lines.
It's not a real problem, but did anyone else faced this constraint?
Do you know if there are plans at STATA to relax the constraint?

Many thanks,
