The 18may2004 executable and ado update introduced 
the possibility to include .ihlp files in .hlp files.
I was wondering if it is possible to specify include 
files in programs in a similar way.

My idea was to enhance -estout- by adding the 
possibility to define customized styles which are 
saved in files (similar to graph schemes). This could
be done, of course, by creating additional ado files 
defining the defaults (e.g. create a file 
estout_mystyle.ado which contains the program 
-estout_mystyle- defining the style defaults. 
-estout ..., style(mystyle)- would then internally
execute -estout_mystyle-). However, include files
would be much more straightforward and, as I believe,
easier to use for people who do not know much about

Many thanks in advance,
