Re: st: sthlp file not displaying correctly |

Sunil, I cannot reproduce this problem using Stata 12.1 on a WinXP machine. Might this be a MAC-issue? Aside from your question migth I suggest that instead of {cmdab:gamma}{cmd:(}{it:numlist}{cmd:)} is required [...] think of {opt gamma(numlist)} is required [...] if -gamma- is an option. I know it looks the same, it is just that the "{opt} version" is "cleaner" and fewer typing is involved. Also {it: numlist} is probably supposed to be {it:numlist} Best Daniel -- Hello all, I am trying to write an sthlp file for an ado command. But, it doesn't seem to display correctly. I'm using Stata 12.1 for Mac. In the sthlp file, I have the following text: {phang} {cmdab:gamma}{cmd:(}{it:numlist}{cmd:)} is required, and specifies the values of Gamma at which Rosenbaum's sensitivity bounds are to be calculated. {it: numlist} must contain 1, the level of Gamma at which allocation to treatment is assumed to be independent of unobservables. {p_end} But, when I access the file through Stata (typing -help mycommand-) it appears as gamma(numlist) is required, and specifies the values of Gamma at which Rosenbaum's sensitivity bounds are to be calculated. numlist must contain 1, the level of Gamma at which allocation to treatment is assumed to b ndent of unobservables. The offending bit is towards the end: "assumed to be independent of unobservables" displays as "assumed to b ndent of unobservables". This pattern continues even if I substitute other text in between, as some or other part always manages to disappear. What am I doing wrong here? * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/resources/statalist-faq/ * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
