Dear David, Haluk,

I have just augmented -ttesttab.ado- to show confidence interval for
difference of the means. Default is 95% level, use option /level(#)/
to specify level the same way standard -ttest- expects it. Use option
/unequal/ if appropriate.

Question #1: Is anybody else interested in this? Do commands like
these deserve to be posted to SSC?

Question #2: Does anybody know how to merge the columns titles in the
output of the 'undocumented' undocumented command _matrix_table?

Best, Sergiy
