Dear Statalisters,

I have a simple question. How do I add a suffix to all variables in my dataset. So suppose I want the variables WHEAT, MAIZE, CEREAL to be renamed to FOOD_WHEAT, FOOD_MAIZE, and FOOD_CEREAL. I can't use the command  * renpfix * because it only allows you to change one suffix for another, such as to change GRAINWHEAT to FOOD_WHEAT by typing the command 

renpfix grain food_

I could do this manually, but when I want to add the suffix food to, say, 80 variables that becomes tedious. Any ideas?
