Thanks to Kit Baum, the -egenmore- package on SSC has been 
updated. 

Kit announced yesterday that SSC is down for maintenance, 
but when it returns you may install or update -egenmore-
using the -ssc- command. 

-egenmore- is a collection of some 66  -egen- functions 
written by Kit Baum, Ulrich Kohler, Steven Stillman, 
Nick Winter and myself. They will run with various 
versions of Stata, as indicated in the help file. 
Although it is quite often mentioned on Statalist 
as a source of useful functions, by the same token 
it appears that many users are unaware of it. 

The main changes in this update are 

1. A new function -wpctile()- written by Ulrich 
Kohler allowing specification of weights in the 
calculation of percentiles. 

2. A fixed function -semean()- in which the 
exclusion of numeric missings is changed to < . from
!= . to avoid a potential bug if any of .a ... .z
is present. 

In addition, there have been some small fixes
to the help file.
