Depending on what you want to do, also check out commands like -corr2data-, -drawnorm- and -simulate-.


P.S. what's SPSS?
Unless you happen to have one of its 30 year old manuals, it is hard to find out. I don't think it wants its business customers to know anything about its social science origins.

If you happen to catch Bill Gould at a meetings sometime, like I did, he can give you the details about all the careful thought that went into the name "bi-turbo Stata" (as opposed to plain old Turbo Stata) for one of Stata's earlier incarnations.
