Stephan,
Richard suggests to make a copy of frac_chk.ado. Use which
to find it. For example in this pc:
which frac_chk
C:\Stata8\ado\base\f\frac_chk.ado
Make a copy (for example in your ado folder) typing
copy C:\Stata8\ado\base\f\frac_chk.ado C:\ado\frac_chk2.ado
Modify frac_chk2.ado (using notepad or any text-editor).
The problem is how!! Specifically what distributions will be
asociated with ologit? Experts should know the answer.
Rodrigo.

The list of "blessed" programs is contained in
frac_chk.ado
I don't know why ologit is not on the list, e.g. is it sound
statistical practice to exclude it or did nobody ever get around to
programming it? I also don't know what good or bad things would
happen if you created a modified program where ologit was among the
blessed, but I suppose you could try it. Just don't zap the originals.
