Re: st: Re: Unwanted pause after -shell- in do-file
I agree. I think this is an XP issue. I get exactly the same very
intermittent delays and screens on a command like this:
shell dir *.hlp /S/b > sfiles.txt
I have thought that XP was "busy" at the moment and that it was the cause
of the delay.

I'm not certain, but I think the proper question might be "why does
Windows XP behave this way?" or even "Why does Stata/Transfer behave this
After all, the delay occurs outside of Stata (it is a delay in a winXP
command window, not within Stata). The change in behavior after opening
and closing an initial window may also have to do with winXP. You might
want to try running the same Stata/Transfer command line from a "run"
prompt in winXP, outside of Stata, and see if the same problem emerges.
