Re: st: Re: Unwanted pause after -shell- in do-file
Another couple of thougths:
This may be a matter of XP finding memory space to run the command. And if
you have used up a lot with Stata (and other applications), it may be
shuffling memory or using virtual memory. Try doing it while Stata is
using a small amount of memory, and see if that makes a difference.
I just tried it on WIN 2000, with no problem. It may possibly work better
on my "less-advanced" system.

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.
