As signalled earlier today, and thanks to Kit Baum, -catplot- has been
revised on SSC. 

. ssc desc catplot 

gives an executive summary. 

Please use -ssc- or -adouPdate- to install if interested. 

I revised the syntax and much extended the help file. 

Stata 8 is required (still). 

If you used -catplot- previously, then please note that the new
-catplot- breaks old habits and any .do or .ado files. 

I didn't do that lightly, and did consider other possibilities, e.g.
trying to be smart enough to recognise both syntaxes, but then that's a
pain too; or changing the name, but I like the name -catplot-, so there;
or some version control fudge, but that's not attractive either. 

If you used -catplot- previously, you have choices: 

1. You need not download the new files. But you're missing out on
learning what -catplot- can do. 

2. You could just download the new files, but carefully rename them with
a name of your choice. But it's your program now! 

3. You could just learn the new syntax. I think it's better, but then I
would, wouldn't I?

4. You could learn to program Stata; that way you need not be bitten by
user-programmer  caprices.
