inspect income

will deliver some basic information about the variable "income" (of course, several variables may be listed; omitting variable names will provide information about all variables). Not the least useful feature is a small and simple histogram (not a graphics file, just a plain and simple thing made of double crosses). Also, the number of positive, zero, and negative values will be provided, as well as the number of distinct values the variable has.
