No, I don't think I know much about "above". However, I would be very surprised if I ever found any reason for returning from the more comprehensive -listtab- to the less comprehensive -listtex-. The -listtab- package is intended to generalize -listtex- from outputting mostly TeX and HTML to also outputting RTF (the established document format of the past) and the various XML-based languages (which most of us hope will be the formats of the future).

Best wishes

Roger, do you know more about "above" than the rest of us?

Betreff: st: New version of -listtex- on SSC

Thanks to Kit Baum, a new version of the -listtex- package (intended as the
final version) is now downloadable from SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command
to do this, or -adoupdate- if you already have an old version.

The -listtex- package is described as below on my website. The new version
adds some -version- statements (previously missing) to the -listtex_vars-
and -listtex_rstyle- modules. And the on-line help fixes a few typos, and
now contains a recommendation for users of Stata 11 and above to use the
-listtab- package, introduced yesterday as the Stata 11 replacement for
-listtex-.

Best wishes

Roger

TITLE
      listtex: List variables as rows of a TeX, HTML or word processor table

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      listtex outputs a list of variables to the Stata log or to a file as
TeX,
      HTML or word processor table rows, which can then be inserted into a
TeX,
      HTML or word processor table by cutting and pasting and/or file
linking
      and/or embedding (eg using the TeX \input command). listtex produces
the
      table rows, but may also produce a set of header lines before the
table
      rows and/or footer lines after the table rows, containing preambles
and/or
      table definitions and/or table headers and/or table footers, as
specified
      by the user. Users of Stata versions 11 and above should probably use
the
      listtab package, also downloadable from SSC, instead of using listtex.
