Update to "Integrating Stata and external text editors"

I have rewritten my guide to Integrating Stata and external text editors. The guide describes how a text editor can be fully integrated with the Stata statistical package, similar to the simple editor that is part of Stata. For this purpose I developed two AutoIt scripts that are now available in a new version 2.0.

New features:
  • Support for Stata 9 added, the latest release of Stata. The scripts are now compatible with Stata 7, 8, and 9.
  • The scripts work with more than one instance of Stata.
  • Scripts do no longer rely on the built-in Stata editor.
The new scripts were made possible with help from Nicholas Winter, who updated my old scripts to be compatible with Stata 9 and suggested several ways to make them more efficient. Additional acknowledgements can be found at the end of the guide.

Update, 9 June:
  • Version 2.1 of scripts released.
  • Fixed problem with the clipboard that was reported by some users.
Update, 30 June:
  • Version 2.1.1 of rundolines script released, with minor bug fix.
