I've installed mcompp and mcompr but can't seem to get mcompp to work.
What is the proper syntax?

Here is an extract from the help file:


 P-values for multiple comparisons                               [sg28:
STB-22]
----------------------------------

        mcompp varlist , [ nocons bonferonni(varname)

                        scheffe(varname) sidak(varname)

calculates P-values for all possible contrasts defined by the varlist.  This
list must appear in the most recent estimation command.


Here are the errors I get when I try different syntax.  It seems odd
that the syntax diagram contains just an opening square bracket, no
closing one.

. mcompp _Ifamily_2, [sidak(sidak)
option [ not allowed
r(198);

. mcompp _Ifamily_2, sidak(sidak)
program error:  matching close brace not found
r(198);

. mcompp _Ifamily_2, sidak(sidak)]
option ] not allowed
r(198);

. mcompp _Ifamily_2, (sidak(sidak))
option ( not allowed
r(198);

. mcompp _Ifamily_2, [sidak(sidak)]
option [ not allowed
r(198);

. mcompp _Ifamily_2
program error:  matching close brace not found
r(198);


Thanks.
