The Stata 9 and Stata 10 versions of -bmjcip- can still be downloaded from my website (see my signature below). In Stata, you can type

net from http://www.imperial.ac.uk/nhli/r.newson/

and select the subdirectory wstata9 or stata10, and download the version of bmjcip in that subdirectory. I have a policy of not depriving users of earlier Stata versions of anything they had before, and my website is arranged accordingly, with subdirectories corresponding to earlier versions of Stata.

However, this will not give you the latest improvements. And, as it happens, the latest improvements do not seem strictly to require Stata 11, or even Stata 10. I found this out just now by doing a quick downgrade of bmjcip.ado, bmjcip.sthlp (downgraded to bmjcip.hlp), and bmjcip.do (the certification script). I  managed to run the downgraded bmjcip.do under version control using the dolog9 module of the dologx package (which you can download from SSC if you are a Stata 11 user and from my website if you use Stata 9 or 10). This downgrade does everything the latest version does, except incorporating the improvements to the on-line help introduced in Stata 10 (which introduced .sthlp files to get through the most restrictive firewalls used by the Stata community) and Stat 11 (which introduced online .pdf manuals).

I have attached the downgrade to a separate email to John, and it is available to other users on request. The downgrade comes in a file bmjcip.zip, which you can extract to your Stata PERSONAL folder. (See on-line help for -adopath- to find more about PERSONAL and other folders.)

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any queries.

Best wishes

Roger

This is a useful tool; however, I'm running Stata 9. Does this depend on 
Stata 11 or can it be revised for older versions?

The new version has slightly redefined the option -esub(rtfsuper)-, which causes exponents in decoded P-values and confidence limits to be reformatted as RTF superscripts. The RTF superscripts are now enclosed inside a pair of curly brackets { and }, so the superscripting will not apply to any text that the uset appends to the decoded P-values and confidence limits.
