st: Update to -center- on SSC

Thanks to Kit Baum, the -center- package has been updated on SSC.

To install the update, type

. ssc install center, replace

-center- now has a -generate()- option to specify the full name of the new variable to be created. With the previous version it was only possible to specify a prefix.

Note that -center- may only be applied to one variable at a time if generate() is specified.

The new -generate()- option is especially useful in programming contexts where one is working with temporary variables. Example:

... tempvar c_x center `x', generate(`c_x') ...
