Dear All

Kit Baum has very kindly placed on SSC the -gphepssj- package, a small "futility" I wrote for myself and other SJ authors. (Thanks, Kit, for that, and also for correcting a couple of typos in the .hlp file.)

The -gphepssj- package takes, as input, a list of unextended file names name_1 ... name_n, and translates the Stata graph files name_1.gph ... name_n.gph to Encapsulated PostScript files name_1.eps ... name_n.eps, with the default -xsize- (3.12 inches) and -ysize- (2.392 inches) for SJ figures. -gphepssj- is intended to enable SJ authors to preview their SJ inserts (using SJ LaTeX) with the figures at the right size, without typing multiple -translate- commands and having to find out and/or remember the default sizes (which Jeff Pitblado told us about the other day on Statalist). It should be stressed, of course, that the SJ editors prefer to receive the original .gph files in a SJ submission, so they can tweak them manually.

Best wishes
