Hi, I am trying to implement an interpolation formula for 
quantile estimation (see [R] pctile, -altdef- option) in Mata. 
My function works fine with unweighted data or with frequency 
weights. However, other kinds of weights are a problem and I 
don't know how to solve it. Does anyone know a good reference
concerning quantile estimation with weighted data?
Thanks,
ben
