Dear All

Thanks to Kit Baum, my new package -inccat- is now downloadable on SSC (as well as on my website).

-inccat- ("include and concatenate") is an extended version of -copy-, allowing the copying of multiple input text files to one output text file and, optionally, the insertion of extra input files in the output file. Therefore, if you type

inccat myinf1.txt myinf2.txt myinf3.txt,to(myoutf.txt) replace

then you copy the concatenation of -myinf1.txt-, -myinf2.txt- and -myinf3.txt- to -myoutf.txt-. And, if you type

inccat myinf1.txt myinf2.txt myinf3.txt,to(myoutf.txt) replace prefix(*insert)

and -myinf1.txt-, -myinf2.txt- annd/or -myinf3.txt- contain lines like

*insert myinf4.txt myinf5.txt

then the same concatenation is done, except that, in -myoutf.txt-, these lines will be replaced by the concatenated contents of -myinf4.txt- and -myinf5.txt-.

Best wishes
