As far the original question goes, 

1. All commands start with a command name. -normal()- is a function
name. 
Stata has no idea of "a function command". 

2. -generate <newvar> = normal(<exp>)- 

may be what you seek.

I tried to use -normal(flessc)- to get the cdf of the variable  
(flessc). Under Stata 10 it always gives me:

. normal(flessc)
unrecognized command:  normal
r(199);

Could someone help me with this? Since -normal(z)- is an function  
command in Stata 10 it should work.
