I want to take a variable that is in decimal format and convert it to a six
digit binary number. Then take that and form six new indicator variables.

For example,

. inbase 2 29
11101

Provides this. I would like to write a do file to loop through the values of
a variable and do this. Converting the answer to six new indicator
variables.

So if var1 took on values of 15, 29, 35, ...
I'd like to get

var1    v1a v1b v1c v1d v1e v1f
15      0   0   1   1   1   1
29      0   1   1   1   0   1
35      1   0   0   0   1   1
....

Any assistance would be most appreciated.
