hi all,

I have a problem in the way -bootstrap- or -permute- cooperates with a
program of mine, -khb- (available form SSC). In the command 

. bootstrap _b[indirect], reps(50): khb regress mpg length || weight

-bootstrap- internally changes the user-input

"khb regress mpg length || weight"


"khb (regress mpg length) (weight)"

The same happens with -permute-. Looks like -bootstrap- interprets the
user input as if it where a -graph- command. 

I think the change arrives it the official subprogramm
"_on_collon_parse.ado", which is used by -bootstrap- and -permute- but
it is not clear to me why it happens.

What can I do in my program -khb- to circumvent that problem?

Many regrads
