Thanks to Kit Baum, a new version of the eclplot package is now
available for download from SSC. In Stata, use the ssc command to do

The eclplot package is described as below on my website. The new version
is updated to Stata version 10, and has a new Stata 10 style option
addplot(), allowing the user to add additional plots to the confidence
interval plot. This is useful if the user wants to add sample numbers or
significance stars.

The old Stata 8 style option plot(), which previously performed the same
function, still works, and therefore so will old do-files that used that
old option. And users of Stata versions 8 and 9 can still download the
old versions of eclplot from my website by typing

net from

in Stata and selecting the Stata version that they need.

Best wishes

      eclplot: Horizontal and vertical confidence interval plots

      eclplot creates a plot of estimates with lower and upper
confidence limits
      on one axis against another numeric variable on the other axis.
The estimates
      and lower and upper confidence limits are stored in three
variables, in a
      data set with one observation per confidence interval to be
plotted. Data
      sets with such variables may be created manually (using a
      or using the parmest package, or using statsby or postfile in
official Stata.
      The user has a choice of plotting the confidence intervals
horizontally or
      vertically, a choice of plot styles for the estimates, and a
choice of range
      plot styles for the confidence intervals. It is also possible to
      the confidence interval plot with other plots using the plot()
      and to overlay multiple superimposed confidence interval plots
using the
      supby() option. eclplot may be used either as a command or through
a dialog.
