I don't understand your line of thought ... you actually want me NOT to advance my understanding of programming in Stata? Why are some folks allowed to understand advanced programming and others not?

Sorry to say this, but one huge negative of Stata is that there is so much undocumented stuff - and for efficient programming we have to repeatedly rely on email lists like this.

These are names of globals defined in -egen- to communicate between
programs, which manifestly can't be done through locals, apart from
using non-documented features. If you're following my earlier advice
you will leave them in peace.
