This is a user-written program (from Nick Cox) and it is dpplot not ddplot. Type help dpplot and click through to download it.

I am trying to produce a density probability plot fitted to data using a gamma distribution produced from the data, like is done in FIGURE 5 here

The Stata Journal (2005) 5, Number 2, pp. 259-273 "Speaking Stata: Density probability plots"
http://www.stata-journal.com/sjpdf.html?articlenum=gr0012

It seems -ddplot- no longer exists.  Can -gammafit- be used?

Thanks.
