I would look for -duplicates- on age, date of diagnosis, date of death,
conditionally on group being A or B. -duplicates- allows -if-. Isn't
that your question?

I have a dataset containing survival data, in which exposure groups 
are A and B.

I wish to find records in group A that share the same values in group 
B, for each of several fields:
	age
	date of diagnosis
	date of death

I have studied the commands dups and duplicates but don't see how 
they can handle finding values from two different groups sharing the 
same values. I'd appreciate any suggestions or pointers.
