One of the programs in the clarify series is estsimp.It's help file states:

estsimp estimates a variety of statistical models and generates M simulations
of each parameter.  Currently supported models include regress, logit, probit,
ologit, oprobit, mlogit, poisson, nbreg, sureg, and weibull.  The simulations
are stored in new variables bearing the names newvar1, newvar2, ... ,newvark,
where k is the number of unique parameters.  Each variable has M observations
corresponding to the M simulations.  estsimp labels the simulated variables
and lists their names on the screen, so you can verify what was simulated.

The estsimp command accepts nearly all options that are typically available
for the supported models.  It also accepts several special options that are
described below.

    estsimp is part of CLARIFY, a suite of Stata programs for interpreting
    statistical results, and is (C) Copyright, 1999-2001, Michael Tomz, Jason

 I have written a wrapper to the clarify series: findit qsim

I am just wondering what the command "clarify" does. It's not entirely clear to me, but looks like it might be useful. Can somebody explain this? Many thanks.
