st: Stata 10 downgrades of bmjcip, chardef, listtab, rtfutil and sdecode

I have just added to my website some Stata Version 10 downgrades of my Stata Version 11 packages -bmjcip-, -chardef-, -listtab-, -rtfutil- and -sdecode-, described as below on my website. All of these packages can already be downloaded by Stata Version 11 users from SSC in their Stata Version 11 versions by using the -ssc- commands. The Stata Version 10 downgrades can be downloaded from my website from within Stata by typing

net from "http://www.imperial.ac.uk/nhli/r.newson/stata10/";

and selecting the package(s) required. The Stata Version 11 versions of these packages are the standard versions available for download from SSC, and also from my website by typing, in Stata,

net from "http://www.imperial.ac.uk/nhli/r.newson/stata11/";

but they do not use any special Stata Version 11 capabilities, so I have written the Stata Version 10 downgrades for Stata 10 users who might like to use them.

I would like to thank Patrick Musonda of the University of East Anglia, UK, and John LeBlanc at Dalhousie University, Canada, for suggesting that these Stata Version 10 downgrades might be a good idea.

Best wishes

Roger

package bmjcip from http://www.imperial.ac.uk/nhli/r.newson/stata10
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TITLE
      bmjcip: Format confidence intervals and P-values for medical journals

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      bmjcip reformats a list of numeric variables, containing estimates
      and/or confidence limits and/or P-values, to string variables,
      containing the same values formatted for presentation in medical
      journals.  The new string variables replace the old numeric
      variables, and have the same names, variable labels, variable
      characteristics, and positions in the dataset.  bmjcip is usually
      used in output datasets (or resultssets) produced by the parmest
      package, and the reformatted string variables are usually later
      output using the listtab package, for input to Microsoft Word or
      other word processors.  It requires the sdecode package in order to
      work.  The sdecode, parmest and listtab packages can all be
      downloaded from SSC.

package chardef from http://www.imperial.ac.uk/nhli/r.newson/stata10
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TITLE
      chardef: Assign values to a characteristic of a list of variables

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      chardef is a mass-production version of the char define
      command.  It assigns a list of values to a named
      characteristic of a list of variables specified by a varlist.
      If the varlist is not supplied, then chardef assigns the
      values to the named characteristic for all variables in the
      dataset currently in the memory.  If the named characteristic
      is not supplied, then the values are assigned to the
      characteristic varname, used by the list command.  If the list
      of values is shorter than the varlist, then the list of values
      is extended on the right with copies of the last value.
      Optionally, a prefix and/or a suffix may be added to the
      values.  The charundef module resets a list of characteristics
      to empty strings for a list of variables.

package listtab from http://www.imperial.ac.uk/nhli/r.newson/stata10
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
listtab 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). listtab 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.

package rtfutil from http://www.imperial.ac.uk/nhli/r.newson/stata10
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TITLE
      rtfutil: Utilities for writing Rich Text Format (RTF) files

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      The rtfutil package is a suite of file handling utilities for
      producing Rich Text Format (RTF) files in Stata, possibly
      containing plots and tables.  These RTF files can then be
      opened by Microsoft Word, and possibly by alternative free
      word processors.  The plots can be included by inserting, as
      linked objects, graphics files that might be produced by the
      graph export command in Stata.  The tables can be included by
      using the listtab command, downloadable from SSC, with the
      handle() option.

package sdecode from http://www.imperial.ac.uk/nhli/r.newson/stata10
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TITLE
sdecode: Decode a numeric variable to string, formatting unlabelled values

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
sdecode is an extended version of decode. It takes, as input, a numeric
      variable, and generates, as output, a string variable, with values
corresponding to value labels of the numeric variable for labelled values, and (optionally) formatted values of the numeric variable for unlabelled values. The output string values therefore appear as the numeric input
      values appear in output from the tabulate command. The output string
variable may replace the input numeric variable or be generated as a new
      variable.
