st: -outreg-: some general comments
-outreg- has many devoted users, and it
also attracts a fair number of questions,
some of which can evidently be answered by
those who also use it, although many appear
to get no response.
In asking questions about -outreg-
the following points should please be borne in mind,
subject to correction as always.
They may help to explain why those questions
often receive no answers.
1. The author of the program is no longer
a member of Statalist, nor does he
appear to be active with Stata. Only
he, I suspect, could answer many of the
questions which are posed.
2. -outreg- is a long and complicated
program, which makes it less likely that even
Stata programmers can see at a glance
what might be the answer to a question.
That of course doesn't rule out careful
reading of the help.
3. -outreg- appears to have been last revised
two years ago. That doesn't make it
obsolete in any sense, but it may mean that
as Stata changes it will slowly but surely be
less able to fulfil the expectations that
many users want to put upon it.
