Thanks, Nick.

I have checked into mfx using findit mfx and couldn't get much out of it. Most of the explanations are too short and didn't even touch upon the standard errors of marginal effects. Any more inputs from those who wrote it or some other good references talking about the standard errors especially for the nonlinear options? Appreciate it.

In addition to [R] mfx, there is a bunch of FAQs
on the Stata website.
