st: RE: Statistical Classics Archive: Stata 1.0 Manual
Wow! What I find stunning is how similar the syntax diagrams and main
features were a "mere" 22 years ago, e.g. the -by ... : - construct, _n
and _N indices, [if exp] [in range], value labels, explicit
subscripting, the list goes on.
Shows how Stata got it right the first-time and has kept on building on
strengths ever since!
Alas, I could not find any references to auto.dta however. :-)
