Indeed, but I also explained that it uses version control, so it still works. The only thing out-of-date about -cusum6- is that its graphs cannot be edited in versions of Stata from 8 on. What is out-of-date is the graphics advice in the document you downloaded from Royal Holloway, London and I gave some advice on how to plot results from this method.

As I said, I am working on time series data and want to label my X axis so I could identify (with th cusum6 command) break point; but, I can't edit myself.

I changed "gra" to "graph" and I got "gpopgraph_g.new petindex, s([year]) xlab ylab: class member function not found" message. To say it frankly, it's my first time using stata and I have stata12; therefore it's hard for me to know what has changed and from where.
