I for one would like to express my gratitude to Nick and the other
regular contributors to Statalist.  Far from being rude, they are
extraordinarily generous with their time and provide invaluable help to
many people at all levels.

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
