-xi3-  is an enhanced "interaction-expansion" prefix command, written by Phil Ender.
 The reference  is  to a 2007 Statalist thread  about how to find -xi3-.  ( For some
reason, -findit- still does not do the job. I just now located -xi3- by starting
from a search box on the UCLA Academic Technology Services web site.  

The command can be installed from the Stata by typing:

net from
net install xi3

In Stata 11+, factor variables provide much of the utility of -xi3-.  However
-xi3- and the contributed command -desmat- (findit)  have capabilities that
have not yet been duplicated in official Stata:  options to generate
Helmert and other special coding schemes.

I want to thank again Phil Ender and ATS for providing such a wonderful
resource for data analysts.
