It may be that there is a much better up-to-date way of doing 
this, but I don't know. 

It may be that -stgtcalc- is calling very out-of-date -st- 
commands. Slapping -version- on is not going to fix that.

You could -set trace on- and see where the message is coming
from. 

Very likely, somebody needs to get inside. Neither Peter nor Patrick 
is a member of Statalist. Peter's current details 
are 

Professor Peter Sasieni PhD 
Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine (School of Medicine and Dentistry) 
http://www.wolfson.qmul.ac.uk/ 
peter.sasieni@cancer.org.uk 
  
and if you are lucky he will have a more up-to-date version.
