I finally got Stata 9 and can confirm that the above code works as desired under both 8.2 and 9.0, e.g. 9.0 users could specify -level(99.9)- if they were so inclined while 8.2 users would still be limited to using integers.Richard Williams <Richard.A.Williams.5@ND.edu> asks: > Thanks Ken. So, to modify Nick's example, if my program is written in 8.2 > but I want to let the 9.0 users use the new level options, could I say... Almost. There is one error in the original suggestion (I did not see it previously). Instead of checking against `c(version)' check against `c(stata_version)'. So it should look something like program myprog version 8.2 local oktype = cond(`c(stata_version)' < 9, /// "integer `c(level)'", "cilevel") syntax ... , ... Level(`oktype') ...

I wonder if there are other potential applications along these lines - for example, could you have a "slow" subroutine written in 8.2, and a much faster one written in 9.0 using Mata?
