I am having difficulty with the user-written command aflogit.
Although it is expected to work after unconditional logit or poisson it does not work for me.

As to why it stopped working in Stata 11 -- aflogit.ado includes the code

        #delimit ;
if "$S_E_cmd" != "logistic" & "$S_E_cmd" != "logit" & "$S_E_cmd" != "blogit"
         & ("$S_E_cmd" != "glm" | "$S_E_fam" != "bin" | "$S_E_link" != "l")
         & ("$S_E_cmd" != "glm" | "$S_E_fam" != "poi")
         & "$S_E_cmd" != "poisson" {;
disp in red "Can only be used after unconditional logistic or poisson regression";
                error 301;

For whatever reason, it appears that Stata's -logit- stopped setting those macros starting with version 11. If somebody were so inclined, they could probably rewrite aflogit using e(cmd) instead.

aflogit was written for version 5 of Stata, so presumably you could get it to work with any supported command by doing something like

version 5: command...
