Maybe I shouldn't piggy back on this thread, but I've always wondered why such a useful command like -ds- remains undocumented.

While documentation with good examples does exist in the help file, it still doesn't make sense to me that this command is not in the manuals.

244 is the magic number for lengths in Stata... Do you know -ds-? It is
undocumented but can be extremely useful in such situations...

Subject: st: r(varlist) after command lookfor


Does anyone know why the variable list in r(varlist) saved by command
'lookfor' gets chopped?  I don't think it's reached the limit of macro.  In
my case, the varlist should contain 33 variables and each variable name is
7-character long.  r(varlist) contains the first 30 variable names and lists
part of the 31st variable.

Any help would be appreciated.
