Thanks to Kit Baum, the program -tabplot- has 
been updated on SSC. This program requires 
Stata 8. A brief description may be obtained 
by

. ssc desc tabplot

and a longer one by 

. ssc type tabplot.hlp 

The principal changes are 

1. A bug fix. Previously specifying aweights always 
gave the same result as did specifying fweights. 

2. Support for iweights. (Just the same as fweights
here.) 

3. Remarks added on -by()- option. In the previous
version, -by()- was reasonably smart, but this 
was not explicit in the help. 

4. Support for -recast()-. By default, -tabplot- 
shows bars, but you can also -recast()- to another 
appropriate twoway type. This is not a big deal
as most of the legal possibilities are not useful.
(Cartoon in New Yorker: two scientists staring at
a heap of dust. One says: "No-one wanted desiccated
elephant, but it was a great technical achievement.")
