st: looping with macro names
i'm trying to make a loop to run statements like:
qui gen `mathXfirst' = math*first
qui gen `englishXfirst' = english*first
qui gen `other_acadXfirst' = other_acad*first
qui gen `mathXst' = math*st
qui gen `englishXst' = english*st
qui gen `other_acadXst' = other_acad*st
where the first variable in each case is a tempvar name and hence inside
quotation marks. is there a way to do something like:
for C in var math english other_acad: for V in var first st: ...
or something with foreach that will replace the V and C with variable
names, even inside the quotation marks?
