Dear ess-help community,

I had asked:

Tony, I am sorry to have bothered you on this matter and thank you for passing
my inquiry along to ess-help.

I was using 5.1.20 and just upgraded to 5.1.21.  I also discovered that I can
use ess-toggle-underscore to get "_" instead of "- >" assigned to the _ key.  I
would prefer that Stata default to "_" and would appreciate suggestions.

Best regards,

Michael Ash
