st: RE: RE: Generating a Varlist that EXCLUDES a suffix
Having said this, I don't see the relevance to
a -reshape- problem. For -reshape- you need
stubs, not a varlist that includes stubs plus suffixes.
Thus removing varnames that have certain suffixes
won't affect a stub list. You possibly need to
-rename- the *3 first.
