RE: st: A -graph twoway bar- equivalent of the -bargap- option?
In addition, recall that I posted a rough version
of a -textbarplot- program in reply to an earlier
question of the same kind. A better version of
-textbarplot- will be added to the SSC archive
shortly, at Kit Baum's convenience. It is just
a wrapper for -twoway bar- with some bells and whistles.
In the spirit of Austin's reply, note that
since you can put the bars where you want
them and vary -barwidth()- too, you don't
need an equivalent to -bargap()-, as the
same, indeed more, flexibility is provided directly.
