st: loop over tests

Dear all,

I want to run the following tests after a regression command:
sysuse auto , clear
ta rep78, gen(t)
reg price  mpg t1 t2 t3 t4

/*First set of tests: Test each variable with the rest*/
test t1 = t2
test t1 = t3
test t1 = t4
test t2 = t3
test t2 = t4
test t3 = t4

/*Second set of tests: Test all possible combinations*/
test t1 = t2
test t1 = t2 = t3
test t1 = t2 = t3 = t4
test t2 = t3
test t2 = t3 = t4
test t3 = t4

For the first set I do something like:
forv i=1/4{
    local min = `i' + 1
    forv l = `min'/4 {
        test t`i' = t`l'

Is there a way to do a loop for the second set as well and is there a more efficient way for my loop. 
In my actual dataset the number of variables I need to test are almost 100.

Thanks in advance
