Not quite. See the help once more. 

Loosely, -findit- is 

* a -search- on your system 


* a -search- over the net. 

Your -search- on your system looks 
for help for Stata 8.2 and so won't 
see help for the -ca-. This is because it scans
the help files locally installed, which 
naturally won't include those for Stata 9. 

Your -search, net- should 
find _downloadable_ ados, irrespective 
of version. It is not expected to 
find _mentions_ of stuff. -ca- is 
not downloadable by you, as already 

Now is not an especially good time to test the 
difference, as the server supporting 
SSC was down last night and -findit- 
won't find stuff there. But 

. findit eclplot 

on your system will find -eclplot- for 
Stata 9, even though it won't be any 
use to you yet. So, you can see user-written 
programs for Stata 9. To learn about official 
programs that are part of Stata 9, you need to
look at them at the website, which is where we started.
