The Statalist FAQ, which you were asked to read to read before
posting, specifically asks you to give full references.

"Precise literature references please! Please do not assume that the
literature familiar to you is familiar to all members of Statalist. Do
not refer to publications with just minimal details (e.g., author and
date). Questions of the form “Has anyone implemented the
heteroscedasticity under a full moon test of Sue, Grabbit, and Runne
(1989)?” admittedly divide the world. Anyone who has not heard of the
said test would not be helped by the full reference to answer the
question, but they might well appreciate the full reference."

I read in an article (Feng et Al., 2010) that it was possible to perform the Smith and Todd test and the Hotelling test in addition to this t-test. That is why I'm trying to know how to execute it with stata.
