VLIST: Stata module to expand variable list in command syntax
Abstractvlist expands and unabbreviates a varlist of either all new or all existing variables; see [U] 18.4 varlists. The result is returned in the global macro S_1. The number of variables is returned in the global macro S_2. This is a more general command than Stata's unabbrev, since it can expand a list of new variables. Also, unlike Stata's parse, vlist knows how to expand varlists with embedded numbers, such as, v1_1-v1_4. Finally, when used with array (q.v.), vlist can expand varlists containing array references.
