Hi i am tegene i tried to understand the code given for still birth calculation but i did not understand it particularly the following part.

Set length of calendar to use
gen callen = v018 + 59
* If calendar is aligned right (as in original dataset), use the following:
gen beg = v018
gen end = callen
* If calendar is aligned left (as it appears to be), use the following:
*gen beg = 1
*gen end = 60

* Loop through calendar summing births, non-live pregnancies and stillbirths
forvalues i = 1/80 {
* Restrict to 60 months preceding survey
replace births = births+1 if `i' >= beg & `i' <= end & substr(vcal_1,`i',1) == "B"
replace nlbirths = nlbirths+1 if `i' >= beg & `i' <= end & substr(vcal_1,`i',1) == "T"
replace stillbirths = stillbirths+1 if `i' >= beg & `i' <= end & substr(vcal_1,`i',7) == "TPPPPPP"
}

please is there any one to help me to understand how to find still birth by using calendar? or please tell me the above command with simple language??
