ssc install adoedit
adoedit foo...

You should not edit Stata's own ado files (those in the Stata folder); save them as, e.g., foo2.ado in your _own_ ado directory (e.g. ~/ado/personal) and change the program define therein from foo to foo2.

You cannot use adoedit (and the do/ado-file editor) on large ado-files, those over 32K. For that have a look at the SSC item "Texteditors", which discusses alternatives for all platforms. Many of the text editors out there will colorize/colourise Stata syntax.

Dear Statalisters,

        How does one edit an ado file?
