Thanks, but that has long since been superseded in a way that solves
your problem.

-quantil2- was my generalization of the official Stata command
-quantile-, the omitted "e" reflecting the 8.3 or filename.ext limit
on DOS filenames. I changed the name to -qplot- in 2004.

The best reference for the technique as implemented by me is

Cox, N.J. 2005. Speaking Stata: The protean quantile plot. Stata
Journal 5(3): 442--460

and the latest reference on the code is given within

-qqplot- is, and always been, a different (official) command.
