Thanks as usual to Kit Baum, the -tabplot- package including a program of the same name has been updated on SSC. Stata 8 is required. (In the unlikely event that anyone using Stata 6 or 7 is reading this, they should note that -tabplot6- remains accessible as part of the package.) 

-tabplot- has since 1999 been dedicated to an obvious, mundane, trivial but nevertheless often useful graphical idea, the notion that a table of values may be well represented by a corresponding table of bars with lengths proportional to value. 

In its simplest invocation, -tabplot- is like a graphical equivalent of -tabulate- for two variables. Correspondingly, there are options to show the values themselves as text labels. 

The update includes several new features and improvements to the help file. The most notable is the addition of a -separate()- option, which is the door to representing different kinds of bar differently, most obviously by different colours. Although the possibility is not emphasised in the help, it also opens the door to heatmap-like displays with -tabplot-. 

If interested, please use -ssc- or -adoupdate- to install or update.
