Title
  • FEDIT: Stata module to find and edit text file from within Stata
Author
  • Nicholas J. Cox
Physical Description
  • code
Notes
  • fedit finds a text file along the path searched by findfile, which is by default the adopath, and then fires up a text editor to examine that file. The version of fedit distributed from SSC fires up the inbuilt Stata do file editor doedit. fedit will be most useful to those wishing to use a text editor of their choice from within Stata with minimal typing, in particular without spelling out the paths of the file and of the editor executable. Users are encouraged to modify fedit so that it fires up their own favourite text editor if they prefer. However, users are explicitly warned that it is emphatically not good practice to modify official Stata files, even if you really do know exactly what you are doing. Either way, users should take full responsibility for what they do with this program.
