I was under the impression that the bootstrap commands in version 9
take care of the table formatting and output, although they might be
assuming the normal distribution rather than t -- at any rate, the
bootstrap is an asymptotic procedure, and finite sample t-distribution
would be an ad-hoc solution that may or may not be more accurate. And
the syntax of the -bootstrap- command is indeed different in version
9... even the help file says so.

Dear Stata 9 experts,

I was using the following lines of command by Brian Poi to routinely
compute t-stats and p-values after qreg. I adapted the bootstrap code to
stata 9, but got an error message. Is something wrong with the syntax or is
stata 9 to be handled differently?
