mm_plot() -- Draw plot using Stata's graph twoway command
void mm_plot(X [, plottype, options])
real scalar _mm_plot(X [, plottype, options])
X: real matrix containing data (rows are observations, columns variables)
plottype: string scalar specifying type of twoway plot (see help twoway; default is "scatter")
options: string scalar specifying options to be passed on to the graph command
mm_plot(X) draws a twoway plot from the contents of X using Stata's graph twoway command. The columns of X are the variables to be plotted. mm_plot() aborts with error if the graph command cannot be executed successfully.
_mm_plot() performs the same action as mm_plot() but returns the appropriate Stata return code instead of aborting with error if the graph command cannot be executed successfully.
