Thanks. Actually, -mkspline- computes *linear* splines. For instance, the following code: . mkspline Age1 44 Age2 = Age . regress Y Age1 Age2 fits a continuous, piecewise linear model of E(Y|Age) for which the slope is permitted to change abruptly at Age=44. Thus I am looking for a reference that specifically explains what algorithm and formulas are implemented in -mkspline-, and perhaps also discusses uses of linear splines and gives examples where they are used to good effect.
