Please note the preference on Statalist for use of real-name identifiers.

As Phil Schumm notes, this is a key area for many Stata users.

Various quick suggestions:

1. A detail in -manhattan- is your use of -egen- to generate new
variables which are for holding single scalars that are e.g. minimum,
maximum, or total. This is unnecessary and indeed inefficient when
-summarize, meanonly- can be used for that purpose (including
calculation of totals).

2. There is no support for -if- or -in- restrictions.

3. The help file should include an email address for support and
examples that will run. The variable name "P-values" is illegal, so
the example won't run.

4. Your style is your own, but predominant Stata style for messages is
more neutral than yours.
