> Well it kind of depends on how your accessing the Unix system.  Does it
have X forwarding set up which would allow you a graphical interface (in
which case you would use the xstata executable), or are you  using a telnet
type client which would limit you to a command line (in which case you would
use the stata executable).  One limitation of the later is that you will
have difficulty displaying graphs (although a work around was provided
earlier today on the list, so check out the archives).
