Thanks to Maarten for sending this good advice. I have two marginal 

1. Just for the record, ome possible interpretation of this is that my 
-distplot- is a rewrite of -cdf-. As it happens, they arose

-distplot- on the whole can do more things, but -cdf- has an option 
for plotting cumulative Gaussians that is not matched by -distplot-. 

2. Although -cdf- has not been updated to support the new graphics, a
program -cdfplot- on SSC by Adrian Mander is, in effect if not in name,
precisely that update. If the option above was important to you, use
-cdfplot- rather than -cdf-.

-cdf- is an old program and uses graph programs from before Stata 8
which do not work in the same way as the graphs work now (see -help
gr7- for a describtion). So there is no way to make -cdf- work with
schemes, unless you want to rewrite the program. Fortunately that is
not necessary as Nick Cox has already done that for you in the
-distplot- program. To install type -findit distplot- choose the latest
version and install.
