Betreff: st: Tokenize local varlist


I'm trying to use -token- on a varlist I defined, but it seems it's not
as it should. I did the following:

local tvars prefix_*
token `tvars'
local regressand `1'
mac shift
local regressors `*'

So I try to assign all the variables that begin with "prefix_" to local
tvars, and then I tokenize tvars and attempt to assign the first variable to

local regressand and the rest to regressors. However, when I -browse `1'-
tokenizing tvars I get all the variables beginning with prefix_ (i.e. all 
tvars), and after I -ma s- and -browse `*'- I get all the variables in my

Any idea why this is happening?

Thanks in advance.
