Thanks to Kit Baum, -tab_chi- has been updated
on SSC. The update concerns the -tabsplit- command, 
which now requires Stata 8. (The earlier version
remains under the name -tabsplit6-, the 6 being 
a signal that only Stata 6 is required. -tabsplit6- 
is frozen as is, and will not be updated by me; 
it remains just in case it is of interest to 
users of Stata 6 or Stata 7.) 

What -tabsplit- does can be seen by typing 

. ssc type tabsplit.hlp 

in a fairly up-to-date net-aware Stata. 

-tabsplit- goes back to 1998 and was due for 
an overhaul. The previous version could 
change the sort order of your data, now 
regarded as a strong misfeature. -tabsplit- 
now reflects the introduction of -split- 
in official Stata and changes in -tabulate- 
ditto. It is, I hope, a cleaner and more
focused program than the previous version.
