st: single line Mata do-while cycle |

I was expecting this snippet of code to work: mata: k=0 do k=k+1 while (k<10) but... : k=0 : do k=k+1 while (k<10) 'while' found where almost anything else expected r(3000); Breaking this into multiple lines does not help: : do k=k+1 nothing found where 'while' expected r(3000); However, this one works: do k=k+1; while (k<10) Is that the case of "significant" semicolons per [M-2] semicolons? I know that I sometimes need to use semicolons after -if- to indicate absence of -else- statement in crooked branching code. -- Stas Kolenikov, also found at http://stas.kolenikov.name Small print: I use this email account for mailing lists only. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
