Subject   st: stubwidth(#) for output other than table?

Hi All,

On a somewhat regular basis I run into the problem of having the variable
name truncated in the output table (whether that output table be after
regression or other procedure). In -table- there is a stubwidth(#) option
that "specifies the width, in units of digit widths, to be allocated to the
left stub of the table."

Is there a generic alternative to stubwidth for other output? There may be
user-written programs that allocate a certain width to the first column that
may result in truncated variable names. It would be helpful if this could be
overridden in a simple manner. 

As an example, I ran -sum- on a couple of variables. As shown, the variable
names in the first column are truncated

. summarize  tumor_lymphoma_cci metastatic_solid_cci

    Variable |       Obs        Mean    Std. Dev.       Min        Max
tumor_lymp~i |     72210    .0104002    .1014505          0          1
metastatic~i |     72210    .0017311    .0415703          0          1
