Hi all,

I'm working currently in a project implementing a part of Nick Cox's tuples program and I bumped into sth weird.

For values of local which with more than 17 digits subinstr fails to count all occurences of number "1". Below is a small code representative of the problem:

forval i = 65536/65537 {
inbase 2 `i'
local which : di %020.0f `r(base)'
local which : subinstr local which "1" "1", ///
all count(local n1)
di "r(base): " `r(base)'
di "which: "`which'
di "n1: " `n1'

Any ideas??

Thanks in advance,
