When I type -help saveold- in I get this. It does show intercooled.


help for saveold manual: [R] save
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Save datasets as version 7 format

saveold [filename] [, nolabel replace all intercooled ]


Description
saveold stores the dataset currently in memory on disk under the name filename. The dataset is saved in
Stata's version 7 format.


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.

intercooled instructs Stata/SE to write the dataset in the Intercooled Stata format, after verifying that
there are no variables longer than str80. You should rarely need this option; see help SpecialEdition for details.

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.

As a short comment. A full list of all available
options for each command when using help, would
be...helpful.
I am unclear what you mean here.
It's my understanding that that's exactly what the
help tries to do. What in general or in particular
does not satisfy this criterion?
