Dear Statalist,

Is it possible to write a procedure that interacts with the user?
To give an example of what I mean, suppose that I could create such an
interacting procedure "my_summarize" (in a do file) ending with:

sysuse auto
my_summarize mpg

Now  I would like Stata to interact with the user, and want Stata to
come up with the following suggestion:
Type 1 if you want mean and standard deviation or
Type 2 if you want median an interquartile range.
Please type either 1 or 2.
Typing 1 or 2 from would now result in either the mean and sd of mpg or
its median and iqr.

Is such an approach (or some alternative) possible in Stata?

Kind regards,
Adriaan Hoogendoorn
