Here is an alternative:

gen byte indicator = mod(var1+var2,2)==0

The -mod- function is the modulus: the remainder after dividing the
first argument by the second argument. The two values have the same
value if the remainder of the sum divided by 2 is zero. This can be
generalized to three variables:

gen byte indicator = mod(var1+var2+var3,3)==0

etc.

Also notice that I use the trick explained in:

Hope this helps,
Maarten
