I assume that you are reading ``maximum likelihood estimation with Stata''
by William Gould, Jeffrey Pitblado and Wiliam Sribney from the Stata press, 
which discusses programs with these names. The programs -mylogit- and 
-myprobit- are for illustration only (or as a starting point if you want to 
create your own program that is similar to either the logit or the probit). 
So if you want to estimate a logit or probit regression just use -logit- or 
-probit-. Otherwise follow the instructions in the book, and type the code 
into your favourite text editor, and save it as an .ado file. You can also 
download them from here: . But 
typing them is actually more instructive.

Hope this helps,
