Thanks to Kit Baum, -parplot- has been updated
on SSC. -parplot- produces parallel coordinate 
plots and requires Stata 8 as a minimum. 

The update entails various changes:

1. -parplot- had a home-grown -by()- option
that was not quite smart enough to cope with 
stuff like 

by(catvar, note("")) 

This has been fixed. 

2. -parplot- had an -identify()- option that 
is close in spirit to options elsewhere 
called -over()-. Thus the name has been 
changed. This will not break anything as 
the -identify()- option remains, but it 
goes undocumented. 

3. I've added a reference to a rather jolly 
book 

Robbins, N.B. 2005. Creating More Effective Graphs.  
	Hoboken, NJ: Wiley.

which may well interest anyone looking for a basic but 
sensible introductory graphics book (for their students or 
supervisors, naturally).
