thank you very much for your reply.

I am not sure I understand the - grep - part of your email, though. What
does - grep - mean?

Also, I don't see the - tutorial - command in the list in your e-mail.
How can I be sure about whether it has been eliminated? Am I supposed to
check its entry in the Stata documentation? I've tried -findit totorial-
but have been unable to find a (however short) communication about its
disappearance. This makes me feel a bit puzzled. I am about to update my
class notes to account for the new release of Stata 8: the existence of
a document listing all out-of-date commands would save me the checking
of every single Stata 7 command I use in my notes before teaching...

Not as such. A few commands have been moved to undocumented:
see help on -undocumented-, although that help mostly
documents _new_ stuff intended for programmers,
and it is not comprehensive: many undocumented commands
are, indeed, undocumented.

"out-of-date" is much fuzzier than it may seem,
even focusing entirely on official Stata. Many
commands remain available under previous versions,
even if considered superseded or obsolete by Stata

However, a -grep- of the base help files produces
this (edited a bit):
