hi!

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?

thanks!
chris
