Sophie also sent this question to Stata technical support where I responded
with the following:
If I understand your question correctly, you want to know if it is possible
to parse a string that the user has entered into a dialog EDIT box. The
answer to that question is no, because there is not a mechanism for string
manipulation within the dialog language.
You might want to take a look at -stcurve-. I think that dialog handles
similar syntax to what you have described.
