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.
