What is not possible, btw, is the variable name "X,Y"...

It is certainly possible via concatenation of strings, but what is this
variable good for?

***********
clear*

inp byte(X Y)
1 0
0 0
1 1
1 1
1 1 
end

gen str5 mynewvar=string(X)+","+string(Y)

list, noo
***********

Hi;

   I am wondering if it is possible to take two columns of values (X and Y)
and combine them into one, new variable that is X, Y? For example, say I
have 5 variables for X and Y each. X=1 0 1 1 1 Y=0 0 1 1 1 and I want to
create a new variable X,Y= 1,0 0,0 1,1 1,1 1,1. Any help would be
appreciated. Thank you. Martin
