So how I would know to use "total" instead of "sum"? Is there a
searchable list of commands and options that have essentially the same
function in different versions of Stata, but with different names? In
this example, I would like to specify "-egen, sum() and this magic list
would come back with something like what you said below. (Ha)

-egen, total()- is documented as of Stata 9 up. 
-egen, sum()- is not. No other difference. So the former, -total()-, is
now recommended for all users of Stata 9 up.

Nick: What is the difference between -total()- and -sum()- that makes
the latter better than the other?
