```therotically we can learn everything from the manual.
in this regard, the list is needless

i think the answer of the type nick gave me should be band.
1 can answer my question in detail, or don't bother to answer.

actually i have written the following code to generate the bell curve, i
just don't know if there are short ways:

clear
set obs 1000
gen t = (uniform()-.5)*7
gen x = sqrt(2*_pi)*exp(-t^2/2)
sort t
gr x t, c(l) symbol(i) pen(6)

i am afraid that someone who always answer questions without detail is 2
rude
