One way to tackle this -- and I think the easiest -- is just to write a wrapper like this: program catploti version 8 preserve tabi `0' catplot bar row col [fw=pop] end and to call it like this catploti 15 8\ 3 47, col chi2 replace Note: the -replace- is essential. So there are three steps: 1. -preserve- the data. (A -restore- later is automatic.) 2. Call up -tabi- with whatever arguments were given. 3. Call up -catplot- with the variables produced by -replace-. The weakness of this design is how to pass options to -catplot-. That can be done, with more programming effort, or if you have favourite defaults you can just wire them into the wrapper. A percent option is a case in point. Or, to put it another way, you could write two or three wrappers with different behaviour.
