IfI use -asciiplot- from SSC, it displays the available characters inmy current graphics font (set by Preferences->Graphics etc.)Whether I set the default graphics font to Helvetica, Times NewRoman or Courier (which are all standard PostScript fonts), ASCIIcode 178 is \leq and ASCII code 179 is \geq, and something likelocal ti "price `=char(178)' 10000" scatter price mpg if price>=10000,ti("`ti'")readily displays the \geq symbol in my graph without any PostScripthacking. This works fine on Mac OS X 10.5.5. If you set thecurrent graphics font, doesn't this same technique work on the DarkSide?Kit Kit Baum, Boston College Economics and DIW Berlin http://ideas.repec.org/e/pba1.html An Introduction to Modern Econometrics Using Stata: http://www.stata-press.com/books/imeus.html On Oct 14, 2008, at 02:33 , Leny wrote: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 ASCIIcodes. This would have worked, but the ASCII code for ">=" comesunderthe 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!* * 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/
