A great thing about John Gallup's original -outreg- is that it does not need extensive documentation to run. Brevity is a virtue in this case. The original Macintosh (computer) once boasted that it came with a single manual. IMHO, the reverse can also be true. SAS is extremely well-documented. I don't know any statistical softwarethat comes with more documentations. All that documentations serves as a post hoc dressing (i.e. bandaid) for the ad hoc syntax(which is understandable, since SAS was one of the earliest toappear).Stata is much better designed with subsequent programming knowhow built into it (plus the benefit of whoever did the writing). As for myself, I would like Stata to keep running like a Stata, which is to say without the need for extensive documentation, and I think many people would agree with me on this one.
