Hi!
I used to recall this command and I have been trying to figure it out
again for 10 days now, so gave up and will try to put it on the list
for tips?

I have variable 'education' with 4 levels of education: lev1, lev2,
lev3 and lev4
The one line command can create new variables: _lev1, _lev2, _lev3 and
_lev4  with values (0/1)

I know I could do gen _lev1=1 if education==lev1 etc... but I thought
it will be nice to just use one liner for it.

Thank you in advance and best regards
ziad
