Understood. In this case, you are not 
seeing -intercooled- as an option because
your Stata is not up-to-date. The 
help file for -saveold- on my system 
was last revised on 20 August 2003. 

Having the manual would not help here 
as the -intercooled- option is not 
documented under [R] save. 


1 Nobody's perfect. Stata Corp's 
extra option -intercooled- was not, 
it seems, documented until August. 
(I don't know when it was added.) 

2 -update-. Stata Corp try to fix 
such things, but you need to -update-
to benefit.
