Thanks to Kit Baum for making -samplepps- available on SSC (for Stata
version 8 +). -samplepps- selects cases using random sampling
proportional to size (`pps').  Comments and suggestions on the
algorithms used would be welcome.

      'SAMPLEPPS': module to draw a random sample with probabilities
proportional to size

      samplepps draws a random sample from the current data set, with
      probabilities proportional to size (`pps'). The default is to
      select cases without replacement; optionally cases may be
      selected with replacement.
