You are quite right Nick. -levelsof- and -separate- give identical results. The difference I saw arose because y I named the augmented (0,0) points incorrectly when I tested -separate-. -Steve On Wed, Oct 7, 2009 at 10:53 AM, Nick Cox <n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk> wrote: > I don't see any reason why using -separate- as compared with generating > separate variables yourself should mean anything different in ensuing > graphs.
