st: Re: estout vs outreg(2)
First of all the relevant comparison is estout versus outreg2. outreg
has not been developed for some time, which triggered Roy Wada's
development of outreg2.
The primary difference is that outreg2 (like outreg) does all the
heavy lifting itself, whereas estout piggybacks upon the official -
estimates- suite of Stata commands. Thus additional tools such as
estadd would not be useful in conjunction with outreg2, since outreg2
does not make use of stored estimates.
I used to use outreg, and tested outreg2 when it appeared. estout is
complex, but also is very fully documented by an extensive article in
the Stata Journal. estout also has a useful "intro" help file which
shows how it can be used without any complexity, taking the defaults
for many of the options. I highly recommend that anyone interested in
output to text, HTML or LaTeX have a look at estout.

estadd and estadd_plus, which allow you to include additional
statistics. (But perhaps those routines could also be used with
