Subject: st: Lorenz curves on the same graph and with IC

 I would like to plot two Lorenz curves on the same graph from
diferent years to compare evolution (I was reading a old post that say
the best way to do this was to use glcurve with the option with twoway
but Im trying to do this with no sucess).
  I was reading one paper that estimate Lorenz Curves Graph with IC in
the graph and diference among two Lorenz curves (the graph) - i would
like to know if there is a do-file to do this (maybe: SVYLORENZ).
  Alorenz plot the Lorenz curves (classical and General) and Pen

-glcurve- (and -svylorenz-) could be used to draw 2 Lorenz curves on
one graph.
