Dear all,

I'm writing my first likelihood maximizer but I'm stuck at the very first
command of my program when I run my ado file.
It looks like stata won't allow me to generate a variable based on my
arguments.
This mimics however exactly an example given in the stata manual "maximum
likelihood estimation with stata"...
Really don't see what the problem is... Any suggestion?
Sorry for the simplicity of the question...

. cap program drop mgweibull_lf

.         version 8.0

.
.         args lnf lgam lalpha

.
.         tempvar p S1 S2 S3 f

.
.
. qui gen double `p'=exp(2*`lgam')
2* invalid name
r(198);
