Sorry, I cannot see how this is more handy than -inlist()-, but you would
have to double the equal signs in the -cond()- in any case:


*************
clear*
set obs 10
gen byte x=_n
gen byte myvar= cond(x==3 | x==4 | x==5, 1, 0)
l
*************

Martin, let me be more precise: in the condition should be cond(x=3 |
x=4 | x=5, 1, 0)  - it depend on the condition one needs to set - I
was giving a handy example. The cond(.) is pretty flexible.
