Well, the article indeed seems to be the only good source for information on
this command - apart from the code of -_dots.ado- of course. It says that
-_dots- is undocumented, but do not take this too literally, as it is really
undocumented squared: It cannot be found in -help undocumented-, and there
is no help file for it.

Martin;

Yes - they are green. I'm a bit puzzled I can find no information
within Stata regarding these messages ...

Just a follow-up query - dots.ado - Again, I can't find any reference to
this.

I hope to access the article you mentioned .....

Thanks for your help - much appreciated

Philip
