Thanks as usual to Kit Baum, the -tabplot- package
including a program of the same name has been updated on SSC. Stata 8 is
required. (In the unlikely event that anyone using Stata 6 or 7 is reading
this, they should note that -tabplot6- remains accessible as part of the
-tabplot- has since 1999 been dedicated to an obvious,
mundane, trivial but nevertheless often useful graphical idea, the notion that
a table of values may be well represented by a corresponding table of bars with
lengths proportional to value. 
In its simplest invocation, -tabplot- is like a graphical
equivalent of -tabulate- for two variables. Correspondingly, there are options
to show the values themselves as text labels. 
The update includes several new features and improvements
to the help file. The most notable is the addition of a -separate()- option,
which is the door to representing different kinds of bar differently, most
obviously by different colours. Although the possibility is not emphasised in
the help, it also opens the door to heatmap-like displays with -tabplot-. 
If interested, please use -ssc- or -adoupdate- to install
or update.
