When I type help saveold, I get the options below,i.e.
the option 'intercooled' does not appear. The problem
is I dont have the manuals with me, and I thought that
displaying all options (including 'intercooled'), if
this is possible, when typing 'help saveold' could be
useful.


Options

    nolabel omits value labels from the saved dataset.
 The associations between
        variables and value label names, however, are
saved along with the dataset
        and variable labels.  It is unlikely that you
will ever want to specify this
        option.

    replace permits save to overwrite an existing
dataset.  replace may not be
        abbreviated.

    all is for use by programmers.  If specified,
e(sample) will be saved with the
        dataset.
