## st: A -graph twoway bar- equivalent of the -bargap- option?

Hi Statalisters,

I've been experimenting with and comparing -graph bar- and -graph twoway bar- commands for some time. I've noticed that -graph bar- has a -bargap- option, whereby one can control a gap between bars defined by multiple y-variables. I find the ability of -bargap- to make adjacent bars overwrap each other (e.g. -bargap(-50)-) very attractive. Although I find the -graph twoway bar- more flexible, I haven't found its equivalent of -bargap- in the Graphics manual.

Here is my question: Is there any way to implement the -bargap- option available in the -graph bar- command in the -graph twoway bar- command?

Thank you in advance. ---Hiroshi
