st: RE: RE: could numlist return a comma separated list?
That's a pretty lousy solution. Here's a better one:
program cnumlist, rclass
local result "`r(numlist)'"
local result : subinstr local result " " ",", all
return local numlist "`result'"
i.e. this should take the same input as -numlist-.
Very little testing!
