Quite so.

-genbinomial- is by Roberto Gutierrez.

And it is much more general than anything else mentioned
in this thread. But all the examples that Tiago has mentioned
don't need any of that machinery, so as I can infer from
his posts.

One more alternative to -rndbin- in addition to those mentioned by Nick in his response as of 21sep2007

> http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2007-09/msg00689.html

is the -genbinomial- command (an extension of -rndbinx-). It uses a plugin for the binomial generation algorithm and therefore should be faster than -rndbin- and -rndbinx-. See

. findit genbinomial

for more information.
