Dave wrote about Stata on OS X but I have a similar observation about Stata on Windows, specifically concerning -twoway function-. A y=x line drawn with -twoway function- is not as straight as a line drawn with -twoway scatter, connect-. The difference can be illustrated with the following commands. . clear . set obs 2 . gen x = . . replace x = 0 in 1 . replace x = 100 in 2 . gen y = . . replace y = 0 in 1 . replace y = 100 in 2 . twoway (scatter y x, connect(l) clwidth(thin)) (function y=x+1, range(0 100) lwidth(thin)), aspect(1) The -function- line is uneven and can indeed be described as "shocked with electricity", to use Dave's words. Is it possible to draw a -function- line as straight as a -scatter, connect- line?
