How to download stuff from SSC
==============================

1. If you know what you want, the best way is to use -ssc-.
Why best? (a) Stata understands Stata files. (b) Simple
syntax optimised for this purpose.

. ssc inst glmcorr

Installation works fine for me when I try it.
The files are there and OK.

2. If you don't know exactly what you want,
use -findit-. I confirm that

. findit glmcorr

doesn't find the beast in question.
I'll copy this to Kit Baum to check.

3. Using your browser. A bad idea unless
you have no other way. Your other software may
not understand (e.g.) .hlp files
as Stata does.
