Re: st: Stata --> PDFLaTeX, or, when will we get a PDF translator?
I am not sure this addresses your question. What I have done is save the
graph as an eps file. Then, my linux machine has a conversion package and
I convert the file to jpg, gif, tiff, or whatever I need. My linux
version of stata8 allows me to save a graph as an eps file. I don't know
whether this is possible in other OS's but I would assume it is.
Hope this helps.
