Is there any convention that the file _genx.ado ought to define the program _genx?

Better to clone -_genx- and make
the resulting -genx- program a subroutine
of -dfl-, in the same file.

I got the error message
unrecognized command:  _genx not defined by _genx.ado
I had the same problem. The following recipe should do the
job. Find the
file named "_genx.ado" and open it in a text-editor. Change the line

program define genx


program define _genx

and save the file. If Stata is currently running, type
-discard- after you
have done the changes.

If you don't know where to find the file "_genx.ado", type
-adopath- and
look for the path that is labelled (PLUS). At that place you
will find a
directory called "_"  in which you will find the file.
