How interesting.

In fact, the comma seems to toggle back and forth between options and pre-option stuff. Check out, for example:

logit foreign mpg price weight , robust , if rep78>2 , or , in 1/72 , score(myscore)

which gives the same results as

logit foreign mpg price weight in 1/72 if rep78>2 , robust or score(myscore)

Undocumented feature? Bizarre bug?

Hi listers

marking biostat exam my students have used the following "invalid" stata
syntax for egen, but with succes.
 egen gr=cut(x) , at(.1,.3,.5,.8,1) ,if y==1
wich give the same result as
 egen gr=cut(x) if y==1 , at(.1,.3,.5,.8,1)

Have any of you experinced other occations of violation of the
commandname varlist [in if], options
syntax

should this be okay or should I send a bug rapport to stata?

Best Lars
