Dear Statalisters,

Several people have asked about using xtgraph for version 8 graphics.
After looking into what was involved, I decided that recoding xtgraph
would not be the most sensible way to go.  The savedat() option
permits a simple work-around.
For example:

        . preserve
        . tempfile myfile
        . xtgraph c, group(group) bar(se) nograph savedat("`myfile'")
        . use "`myfile'", clear
        . reshape wide  n mean lb ub , j(group) i(week)

        . * Carry out any desired version 8 graphics commands.
        . * Note that -offset- is not available in Version 8.

        . restore


This is included in a new helpfile, available (courtesy of Kit Baum)
via -findit xtgraph-
