Thanks to Kit Baum, there are now new versions of my Stata 9 packages
-dolog-, -dologx-, -eclplot- and -subsave- downloadable from SSC. In
Stata, use the -ssc- command to do this.

The packages -dolog-, -dologx-, -eclplot- and -subsave- are described as
below on my website. The new versions contain the same programs, but the
on-line help contains my new email and website addresses at Imperial
College London, instead of my old email and website addresses at King's
College London.

Best wishes

Roger

package dolog from http://www.imperial.ac.uk/nhli/r.newson/stata9
------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------

TITLE
      dolog: Execute commands from a file, creating a log file

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      dolog (like do) causes Stata to execute the commands stored in
filename
      just as if they were entered from the keyboard, and echos the
commands as it
      executes them, creating a log file filename.log.  If filename is
specified
      without an extension, filename.do is assumed. If filename is
specified with
      an extension, then the log file will have .log as an additional
extension
      (so dolog will not overwrite the original do-file). Arguments are
allowed
      (as with do), but the nostop option is not available.

package dologx from http://www.imperial.ac.uk/nhli/r.newson/stata9
------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------

TITLE
      dologx: Multiple versions of dolog for executing certification
scripts

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      dologx (like dolog) causes Stata to execute the commands stored in
a do-file
      named filename.do as if they were entered from the keyboard, and
echos the
      commands as it executes them, creating a log file filename.log.
The dologx
      package contains multiple versions of dolog, written in multiple
Stata
      versions, intended for use when running certification scripts.
Usually, a
      do-file should contain a version statement at or near the top, so
it will
      still run in the Stata version in which it was written, even if
the user runs
      it under a later version of Stata. Certification scripts are an
exception to
      this rule, because they are run under multiple Stata versions, to
certify
      that the package being tested works under all of these versions. A
      certification script therefore should not contain a version
statement at the
      top. The version of Stata under which it run will therefore be the
version in
      force in the program that calls it, even if that program is dolog.
The
      standard version of dolog should therefore not be used to run a
certification
      script, and the user should use the dologx package instead, using
dolog6 to
      run it under Stata 6, dolog7 to run it under Stata 7, and so on.

package eclplot from http://www.imperial.ac.uk/nhli/r.newson/stata9
------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------

TITLE
      eclplot: Horizontal and vertical confidence interval plots

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      eclplot creates a plot of estimates with lower and upper
confidence limits
      on one axis against another numeric variable on the other axis.
The estimates
      and lower and upper confidence limits are stored in three
variables, in a
      data set with one observation per confidence interval to be
plotted. Data
      sets with such variables may be created manually (using a
spreadsheet),
      or using the parmest package, or using statsby or postfile in
official Stata.
      The user has a choice of plotting the confidence intervals
horizontally or
      vertically, a choice of plot styles for the estimates, and a
choice of range
      plot styles for the confidence intervals. It is also possible to
overlay
      the confidence interval plot with other plots using the plot()
option,
      and to overlay multiple superimposed confidence interval plots
using the
      supby() option. eclplot may be used either as a command or through
a dialog.

package subsave from http://www.imperial.ac.uk/nhli/r.newson/stata9
------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------

TITLE
      subsave: Save a subset of the dataset in memory to a disk file

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      subsave saves a subset of the dataset currently in memory to a
disk
      file. This saves the user the trouble of inserting a preserve
      statement before a save command and a restore statement after a
save
      command. This is especially useful in a group of commands between
a
      preserve command and a restore command, as paired preserve and
restore
      statements cannot be nested. In the output dataset, variables can
be
      renamed, and observations can be resorted.
