The -twoway- family can sometimes behave quite differently from the rest of
the graphs in Stata. IF you want to know what is going on "under the hood",

sysuse auto, clear

profiler on

kdensity mpg
tw (kdensity mpg)

profiler off
profiler report

This method results in less clutter (than the -trace-) on the screen and
still gives you the essential information.

I'm trying to overlay two (or more) kdensity plots.

kdensity accepts the 'norm' option
twoway kdensity does not - see log below

I thought twoway calls kdensity - but I must have a misunderstanding of
stata 10 graphics....

An explanation of principle would be most appreciated.
Thank you,
George Hoffman

This my Stata 10 log:

. two (kdensity rso2c if vmi85==0) (kdensity rso2c if vmi85==1)

. two (kdensity rso2c if vmi85==0,norm) (kdensity rso2c if vmi85==1,norm)
option norm not allowed

. kdensity rso2c if vmi85==0,norm

. two kdensity rso2c if vmi85==0,norm
option norm not allowed
