Christopher W. Ryan--
As -help language- will tell you, the square brackets indicate
optional inclusions (with very few clearly marked exceptions) and
should not be typed in the Command window.  As the Statalist FAQ
advises, you should make clear that you reference a program written
3/16/94 by Bill Rogers of StataCorp and available via -findit- or
net install sg28, from(http://www.stata.com/stb/stb22)
that seems to be broken by updates to Stata that no longer allow code
to follow on the same line as an open brace (open curly bracket).
This can be fixed by deleting the open and close brace anytime they
appear on the same line as an -if- command in mcompp.ado or putting a
-version 5- statement at the top of the program, though you may prefer
to find a more up-to-date command in official Stata by typing -help
_mtest-
