Re: st: expanding a local that contains a list or wildcards

-unab- (unabbreviate a variable list) should do what you want.
I am having the following problem. I have a program that uses a local
rhsvars that looks like "x1 x2 x3 x4 x5". I would like to be able
to use a shortcut and write it as "x1-x5" or as "x*". However, this runs
into the problem that when I tokenize this local later on in the
program, it does not create locals 1-5 containing x1 through x5, just a
local named 1 that contains the text "x1-x5". Is there a way to expand
rhsvars from its abbreviated form and redefine so that the tokenize
unab vlist : x1-x5
will unabbreviate the abbreviated varlist x1-x5 (or x*) and place it in
the local macro `vlist'
see help for -unab- or [P] unab
