If you really really really need class programming (and 
as you can see from the impressive list of user written 
twoway commands by Nick, it is very likely that you do 
not), than can come to the UK Stata Users Group meeting 
on 10 and 11 September, and ask your question directly 
to Vince. 

But seriously, if it can't wait, or London is too far 
away for you, than you should give more information 
about what you want to do, and maybe someone on the 
list can help you.
