Martin, you're walking on very thin ice... ;-))

Whatever you do: "Don't mention the for"


***

For - ups, sorry, I'll start again: 
By myself with the help of Dr. Cox and others I have overcome my
"addiction" using it in do-files. 
But I use it on the command line sometimes so I'm not totally clean.


I personal think that the idea of one-liner-loops including parallel
lists is still a good one. 
A successor that overcomes some of the limitations discussed be???e and
uses locals instead of capital letters
would be a nice addition to the Stata toolbox.

Best wishes 

Stefan
