Dear Statalister (Joe Labarere)

Since the release of sskdlg I have spotted this bug and fixed it. Here is
what I get with the my corrected edition of sskdlg:


--- Begin -----------------------------------------------


   Results for kappa=0.9, p1=0.7, p2=0.7,

   d=0.05 [95% Conf. Interval]:


    *  Sample size = 350



   If the sample size is fixed at 350,

   given the kappa, p1, p2 and CI stated

   above, d = .05.


 --- End -------------------------------------------------



This corrected version has been sent to the editor last year but apparently
it has not been made available yet. I'll contact the editor again. In the
mean time, if you wish, I can send you the fixed version of the ado-file in
private. Please contact me on the e-mail below.


Sincerely,

Michael E. Reichenheim
