If I type

findit detonator plot

or even

findit detonator plots

then I get nothing. However, detonator plots can be produced by -eclplot-, downloadable from SSC. If you type

ssc desc eclplot

then you will find more about -eclplot-, and will be able to downlpad it. Unfortunately, the dialog interface seems to be disabled by a recent revision of the Stata dialog language. Fortunately, -eclplot- still works in command mode.

one way in without too many false positives.
