Dear statalisters:

        I use a xtile2 command:
                xtile2 ttt=lnkcal  if edad3c<998, nq(4) by(sexo1 edad3c)

        bur stata say:
                program error:  matching close brace not found

        Can You help me?
The program is missing a version command, and as a result syntax changes in Stata 8 screw it up. Edit xtile2.ado and add the following immediately after the program define line:

version 7

Either that, or change this line to be Stata 8 compliant:

if "`nquantiles'"!=""{local nq "n(`nquantiles')"}

I think you change it to

if "`nquantiles'"!=""{
local nq "n(`nquantiles')"
