You will need a recent ESS package (mine is v. 5.1.24-3)
I do not think that any specific configuration of ESS and
emacs is needed to run a selection of a do file.
In emacs21, the following command starts a Stata process
in a new buffer:
M-x Stata RET
You will be asked about your starting data directory, which
defaults to your current directory. You can configure ESS
not to ask and start right away (see the ESS info pages,
node "Starting the ESS process").
If the Stata buffer's display is not correct because emacs
does not deal very well with stata conren modes, type:
. conren clear
You may then load your do file. I find it convenient to
split the window into two, with the Stata buffer in one and
the do file in the other.
Make your selection, keep the focus on the do file window,
will evaluate the region.
One note: in my experience, evaluating a whole do file
buffer which ends with an -exit- statement tends to kill the
Stata process (unless the do file modified the data in
Hope this helps. I know that many statalist members have
much more expertise than me on the ESS modes.
