No, the -char- is still there in -help xi-, but its use is now discouraged
whenever -fvvarlist-s have taken over.


***
sysuse auto, clear
char rep78[omit] 5
xi: regress mpg i.rep78
regress mpg ib5.rep78
***

yield the same result.

Many thanks.  Works like a charm.  I  guess the char syntax has been
dropped.  I need to read the user's guide again.  As Nick Cox says, read it
at least once a year.

Tony,

See [U] 11.4.3.2 for setting the "base" level when using factor variables

but can't find it (No, not solidly). Can anyone give me a quick answer to
this - or does Stata 11 have a new way of doing this?
