Hello Laura,

to compare two variables side-by-side type the following command:
browse var1 var2
For example:
sysuse auto
browse price weight

Question to StataCorp:
Would it be possible to make -browse- sensitive to order of the
variables in the varlist?
So that "browse price weight" and "browse weight price" work differently? Also
"browse price weight *" to push the specified variables to the first
columns, then the
rest of the variables.

Thank you, Sergiy Radyakin
