-hpfilter- is part of the Becketti Time-series Library (tslib) and requires
other tslib utilities in order to run properly.  Installing the entire tslib
on your computer should solve your problem.  The issue of -hpfilter-
surfaces from time to time on the list.  To wit, a quick glance at the
archives over the last few months shows that it has crept up in March,
April, June and now July of 2002.  

I would be more than willing to update -hpfilter- so that it no longer
relies on the files of the Becketti tslib.  This could be done in a snap but
I am not convinced that it would be of much help since the re-write would
require a new name for the package.  So long as -hpfilter- remains on SSC,
people will continue to use it and experience some mild frustration with it.
Therefore, I'd like to know if anyone has any suggestion on how we should
handle modules that use dated syntax and whose original author(s) no longer
seem to be 'keeping in touch' with the Stata/Statalist community.   I am
just trying to bounce so ideas here... the answer could very well be 'do
