Statalisers,

Here I have two questions about the use of syntax after program define.
1. How to make abbrevaitions work?
For example, I have
**********************
program define myprgm
syntax [varlist] [if] [in] [,model(string) option(string)]
...
**********************
How can I make my program and option work by just type in:
myprgm var1 var2 var3, m(reg) o(whatever)

2. What does passthru mean in the parenthesis of those options after syntax like:
syntac [varlist] [if] [in] [, option1(passthru)]

Thanks a lot for any input.
