Thanks to Kit Baum, -distplot- has now been updated 
on SSC. 

-distplot- (version 8)

-distplot- (also SJ 3-2) is a version 8 program 
for cumulative distribution function plots. The update, 
apart small changes, principally an extra reference, 
in the help file, marks a revision of syntax for an 
option previously called -tscale()-, which was for 
showing the probability or frequency axis on a specified 
transformed scale. 

The official update to Stata on 12 Sept 2003 added 
a -tscale()- option as a new standard option 
for -graph twoway- for using date formats for time

It is possible (although perhaps a little unlikely) 
that users might want to use official Stata's -tscale()- 
with -distplot-. More important, I don't think it's 
good style to use standard option names with quite 
different meanings. 

Accordingly, the option is now -trscale()-, a name 
for which Stata Corp have no known intentions. 

To update, please go 

. ssc inst distplot, replace 

To install for the first time, 

. ssc inst distplot 

An update will also appear before year end in SJ 3-4. 

-distplot7- (version 7) 

A (clone of) a previous version for users of Stata
7 remains in the SSC -distplot- package. It is 
unchanged, as users of version 7 clearly are 
unaffected by the new official option in Stata 8.
