I can't help with the LIMDEP. But it is easy to see that with his simpsler function, 5*ln(x), that Stata gives the correct result. 5*ln(x) is the derivative of 5*(x*ln(x)-x), so it is easy to calculate its integral from 1 to 100 in closed form as 5*(100*ln(100)-99) = 1807.5851. The result Emmanouil's code is 1807.2015, which is close enough for most purposes (and -integ- produces a numerical approximation to the integral).
