Hello All

Thanks to Kit Baum, there is now a new version of the -eclplot- package available for download on SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to find out more and to install it.

The -eclplot- package is described as below on my website. The new version has two alternative dialogs, which are the old small dialog for Windows 98/ME users and the new large dialog for other users. The new large dialog has 3 extra tabs, named By, Legend and Overall, similar to the tabs of the same names in the -twoway- dialogs. These allow the user to define schemes, graph sizes, by-options and legends using the dialog. However, the user still needs to know some alien-looking Stata graphics language in order to set the sizes, shapes and colors of the estimates and confidence limits themselves, which must be done using text boxes in the "Advanced options" tab. This version is therefore an interim version, to be used until I have written dialog tabs for these.

I would like to thank James Hassell and Jean-Marie Linhart for all their help with the -eclplot- dialogs.

Best wishes

Roger

TITLE
eclplot: Horizontal and vertical confidence interval plots

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
eclplot creates a plot of estimates with lower and upper confidence limits
on one axis against another numeric variable on the other axis. The estimates
and lower and upper confidence limits are stored in three variables, in a
data set with one observation per confidence interval to be plotted. Data
sets with such variables may be created by the parmest package, or by statsby
or postfile in official Stata. The user has a choice of plotting the
confidence intervals horizontally or vertically, and a choice of range plot
styles for the confidence intervals, and may also overlay the confidence
interval plot with other plots using the plot option. In default, eclplot
does not print a legend, and has "sensible" settings for axis titles and
labels, but these defaults may be overridden by the user.
