When I said -tabcount-, I really meant -tabcond-.

At worst, this is two (or three) steps, 

1. create categories 

(2. label them nicely) 

3. tabulate 

But it can be compressed to one step: 

. findit tabcount 

. ssc inst tabcount 

The help file for -tabcount- also has some examples of solutions that
don't entail using -tabcount-.

What I'm looking to do is put a histogram in table form: That is, I'd
like a table showing me how many (and what percentage) of a variable
falls within intervals whose width I specify.

So for example, if X has values 2,3,5,7, and I specified an interval
of width for, the resulting table would look something like:

X range   Perc
0-4         50%
>4-8         50%
8-12          0%

Is there any Stata command (or user-written module) that can do this?
