st: percent format
I often work with percentages, and find it somewhat annoying that
I have to convert numbers to strings to get them to show up with
a %-sign. This is particularly a nusiance with graphs, where a histogram
that might naturally use %s on the y-axis cannot be persuaded
to do so without generating the frequencies first, relabeling them
as strings with %s, and then making a two-plot. Is there a trick that
I don't know about? Is there a reason that Stata avoids, eg, -format %6.1p-?
Seems like it would be a trivial modification at some level.
BTW, I use Stata 9, in case it matters.
