The -invbinomial()- function is build in, that is, part of the
compiled C-code, so there is no invinomial.ado file. As a consequence,
you cannot access it.

For commands you can find out whether a command is build-in or via an
.ado file by typing in Stata -which <cmd_name>-, e.g. -which generate-
or -which logit-. This won't work for -invbinomial()- as it is (in
Stata-speak) not a command but a function, and all functions are
build-in. (exceptions being the "pseudo-functions" that are part of
-egen-).

Hope this helps,
Maarten
