"Yes, it's hazardous. -panels- expects users know what they're doing."

Another hazard could be the fact that a mere "r" is sufficient to allow
Stata to overwrite existing variables which is not quite in keeping with the
spirit of [U], section 11.2.2.: "To allow Stata to overwrite the dataset,
you would type save mydata, replace. replace may not be abbreviated." In
this case we are talking about a variable, not a dataset, but still...


***
webuse nlswork, clear
panels idcode, gen(mycount)
//overwrite w/o prompt to user...
panels idcode, gen(mycount) r
***
