-local-s tend to vanish once the -program- stops anyway, but you can of
course -macro drop _all- should you so wish...

Stata thinks your -local- "a" contains the string "b c=0", btw:

***
loc a b c=0
di "`a'"

Hi,

I was wondering how you can declare more than one local var in one line.

I tried -loc a b c=0- and it returned no error. But -di `a'- returned
r(111). 
Also, is there a way to `drop' the locals after your program ends?

Thanks in advance.

DF Tilley
