<> No, "over" does not capture the = bit. -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Nick Cox Sent: 13 October 2008 17:40 To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: RE: symbol for ">=" in graph text box Hitherto in such cases I have used the word "over". Some people have saved to .eps and hacked the PostScript. Otherwise I agree with your general drift that it would be very nice if it were easier than it appears to be. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Leny Mathew I'm trying to include the 'correct' symbol for ">=" in the legend text box in a graph. Looking through the archives, I found Nick Cox's article on inserting awkward characters in stata which recommended using the 'char' command with the ASCII codes. This would have worked, but the ASCII code for ">=" comes under the extended list (code- 242) and this produces a different character which corresponds to 242 in the ANSI list. It looks like ">=" doesn't exist in the ANSI list! Another option was to use the method suggested by David Harrison in http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2005-03/msg00483.html. I could modify the font that I was using by replacing a least used character by the ">=" sign from the ASCII list I ran into trouble with this as I couldn't replace a character with the ">=" symbol. Is there any easy way of doing this? I would think that the symbol for ">=" would be commonly used in graphs and was under the impression that this would be a simple thing to do! * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
