include, but are somewhat more limited or difficult to use: meta-lr,
ecplot, metagraph .

The -eclplot- package (downloadable from SSC) plots general Stata 8 plots of estimates and confidence limits, and can be used to produce Cochrane forest plots (with symbols weighted by study size). The -metaparm-- package (also downloadable from SSC) can be used to produce the summary confidence intervals, if you already have a dataset with 1 observation per study confidence interval and data including the estimates and standard errors of the study-specific effects.

Hope this helps.
