Sorry for the "insider" nature of this post.... But if there are any of
you out there who remember running log-linear models under the GLIM
program, you will remember a nifty function for creating "factors" for
contingency tables. The command
CALC newfac = %GL(r,n)
would create a variable (if I recall correctly) of 1,...,r in blocks of n
This meant that to input a high-dimensional (or any dimensional)
contingency table, one needed to only input the counts. The structure of
the table (R x C, or R x C x G, etc.) could be accomplished quickly by the
%GL command.
So, in brief, I am looking for a command that creates a variable like:
1
2
3
4
1
2
3
4
and another like
1
1
1
1
2
2
2
2
and so on.
If no %GL like command exists, fine; I'm sure I can figure out a short way
to program this; but if such a command does exist, it would be good to
know.
Thanks,
