Correct. I withdrew this routine in a purge of 
several packages of mine on SSC that I could no 
longer justify.  

In this case the reason is that a single -generate- 
command in terms of calls to -comb()- 
can be used to produce hypergeometric 
probabilities. A dedicated function is 
thus hardly required. You just need to go one 
level down, as it were. 

The cumulative is also a matter of -sum()-.
