st: RE: turnip plot
. search turnip
will point to a source. However, it is difficult
to see what -turnip- can do that other graphs cannot
do better, in some respects much better.
Official -dotplot- with the -center- option does
something very similar, and has been ported to
the new Stata graphics, and as such is much
more flexible. In Stata 6 or Stata 7, there
are earlier versions.
Tom Steichen's -violin- offers something similar,
but with extra features. As far as I am aware,
that remains oldstyle graphics.
In addition, -onewayplot- from SSC offers
a loosely similar plot with some extra features.
That uses new graphics.
This is not to mention graphs making use of
kernel density estimates, etc.
In any case, -turnip- won't work in Stata 7
or Stata 8, even under version control, due
to a syntax change that renders some personal
programming idioms illegal. This could be fixed
easily if it turned out that there was a good
reason to do it.
Even if you are in Stata 6 or Stata 7,
I just recommend using -dotplot- or -violin-
instead. In Stata 8, there is more choice.
