Do not trust it! There is no assurance that name collisions will not
occur. I had a registered ado-file, xttest1, which had been listed with
cmdname for some time. I was very surprised to receive an issue of the
Stata Tech Bulletin and find that an author had appropriated the name,
and StataCorp was now circulating the code, for a different xttest1 --
irregardless of the cmdname registry. I have not used cmdname since.
I just discovered -cmdname- written by Stata Corp back in 1999
that can be downloaded:
. findit cmdname
This command allows you to check to see if a command name
is already registered at Stata and if not allows you to register
it in your name with your email address.
