This is true of other items on that page, e.g., EST2TEX is only found on
muendler site, berkeley, SELMLOG is not found...
The SSC archive describes many items for which the ado- and hlp-files themselves, and the associated 'pkg' files that permit their installation within Stata, reside on the archive's eerver. It also contains items which do not reside on the server -- e.g. est2tex, selmlog, and so on. The latter items will not be found on SSC by 'findit', since 'findit' is generating a list of SSC contents from the 'pkg' files. For very good security reasons, Stata will not allow a 'pkg' to install files from a different machine; thus, the only 'pkg' file for est2tex lives on the author's machine, not on SSC.

Other missing items (gcause, glmcorr) were errors on my part (relating to alteration of file protections on the server) which have been corrected. All items downloadable from SSC should now be 'findit'-able.

Thanks
