st: Stata functions
Apropos of the recent discussion of inlist, I have often wondered why Stata
doesn't allow varlists in functions, but instead requires comma separated
lists. For example,
missing(,a,b,c,d,...) is required. Why not a varlist? I can't quite see any
difference. However, in terms of programming, a varlist is much easier.
reg y a b c if !min(b_*)
is much easier than typing each of the 10 b_ variables which may be long
and easy to misspell.
