Thanks Nick,
I will make the changes and post it to Pr. Kit Baum.
I thought I changed the version number. I think on my
office computer, not on my personnal laptop.
Best regards.


 I have two comments.                                                            
 1. Your program specifies Stata 8, yet requires -levels-,                       
 which was added to Stata as an official command on                              
 16 April 2003. Thus your program will fail for any users                        
 who have just the minimal requirement you specify, unless                       
 they also installed -levels- as a user-written command.                         
 You could save yourself, and Statalist, error reports                           
 by insisting on Stata 8.2. That is, apart possibly from a few                   
 people with major firewall issues, anyone with Stata                            
 8 should be able to -update- to Stata 8.2. Also, anyone with                    
 Stata 8.2 will have -levels-.                                                   
 In Stata 9, -levelsof- is the name used. However,                               
 -levels- still lurks in the official files, although                            
 users should not presume that will be the case                                  
 2. Your help files mentions "referees" on Statalist.                            
 It's a detail, but I think an important one, that                               
 any comments transmitted via Statalist are just                                 
 informal. Nobody "referees" anything else.                                      
 Just in any case anybody misunderstands that,                                   
 please change the wording.
