st: -tableplot-, -cipolate- updated on SSC
Thanks to Kit Baum:
The program -tableplot- has been updated on SSC.
This program requires Stata 8. A brief description
may be obtained by
. ssc desc tableplot
and a longer one by
. ssc type tableplot.hlp
This update follows an update to the sister
program -tabplot- on 26 September.
The principal changes are
1. Remarks added on -by()- option. In the previous
version, -by()- was reasonably smart, but this
was not explicit in the help.
2. Support for -addplot()-. As said, -tableplot-
requires just Stata 8, but if you are using Stata
9 and wish to use -addplot()-, that will work.
Thus, this update is only a little deal, but if
you use -tableplot- you might want to keep up-to-date.
-cipolate- requires Stata 7. The update concerns
explanation in the help of the fact that multiple
values of the y variable specified for a given
value of the x variable specified are averaged
as part of the interpolation. This feature echoes
exactly what the official -ipolate- command does
in that case, as was discussed recently in a thread on Statalist.
Otherwise -cipolate- differs in that it offers
cubic interpolation, not linear, and that it does not offer
In each case, -ssc- may be used to install a
copy, except by those with very old versions of
Stata and those with restricted net access through
Stata, for whom browser installation may be the
only practical solution.
