hi all,

this has been on my mind too, glad to see the idea being so popular.

if i had my way, double-clicking
whatever_it_is_someone_gave_it_a_very_long_name.dta or -use- -ing it would
lead to a stata window with the title bar

IStata8.2 - whatever_it_is_someone_gave_it_a_very_long_name.dta

and after i typed
. set titlebar "prelim data"

it would read
IStata8.2 - prelim data

this would be ideal for the title bar, for the button on the tray, and for
the panel appearing when you are alt-tabbing between running programs (i use
winxp). alternatively, the file name or user-given alias could come first
and then IStata, in which case a full out "Intercooled" would no longer seem
a waste of character space.

thinking of the file name
whatever_it_is_someone_gave_it_a_very_long_but_DIFFERENT_name.dta, i just
hope if the effort is made by statacorp, it will also include the -set
titlebar- possibility.
