-xi3- is an enhanced "interaction-expansion" prefix command, written by Phil Ender. The reference is to a 2007 Statalist thread about how to find -xi3-. (http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2007-03/msg00964.html). For some reason, -findit- still does not do the job. I just now located -xi3- by starting
from a search box on the UCLA Academic Technology Services web site.
(http://statistics.ats.ucla.edu/stat/)

-findit- finds it for me. When I click on the link for it, I get

net describe xi3, from(http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ado/analysis)


In Stata 11+, factor variables provide much of the utility of -xi3-.  However
-xi3- and the contributed command -desmat- (findit)  have capabilities that
have not yet been duplicated in official Stata:  options to generate
Helmert and other special coding schemes.

In Stata 12, the new -contrast- command seems to provide much if not all of the utility provided by -xi3-, including Helmert and reverse Helmert. See

I want to thank again Phil Ender and ATS for providing such a wonderful
resource for data analysts.

I agree. Besides programs, UCLA has some very nice tutorials and examples.
