Maarten is correct. According to the documentation,
. unabcmd reg
should result with "regress" in -r(cmd)-.
Since -unabcmd- is a built-in command the fix will be available in the next
In Stata 9, the built-in estimation command -regress- was renamed to
-_regress- and an ado-file replaced it. This change helped facilitate the
new -vce()- option for estimating alternative (co)variance estimates such as
-bootstrap- and -jackknife-.
In order to continue to allow the abbreviations of the old built-in -regress-
command, the following ado-files are short-cut programs for the new -regress-
This is what -unabcmd- will currently find if you specify one of the
abbreviations for -regress-.
Here is the full list of built-in estimation commands that were renamed and
replaced with ado-files in Stata 9:
We will fix -unabcmd- to correctly recognize the abbreviations for these
