st: -rfl- a recent files list for Stata available on SSC
Thanks to Kit Baum, a -rfl- package is now available from the SSC archives.
It maintains lists of recently accessed files in Stata.
Type -ssc describe rfl- for a package description and -ssc install rfl- to install.
Basically, -rfl- resembles a most recently used files list (MRU in other
Windows programs) including some additional features useful for Stata users.
It allows the user to open a data file by choosing one from a list of
files opened before. The list grows dynamically when opening new files.
The user may choose among different views of the list (last 9, all, by
description). In addition, the user may set the memory allocated to
Stata, attach a short description to each file opened, and open an
appropriate log file, if she likes to, all from within a Stata dialog.
If data are present in memory at the time -rfl- is called, the user is
prompted for action (save data, clear memory).
-rfl- is tested with Stata 8.2, both SE and non-SE.
Comments and suggestions are welcome.
