Subject   st: Where to save non-standard Stata files (those -rfl- needs)

Having just learned that there are Stata users who do not have a 
PERSONAL directory, or whose PERSONAL codeword references a 
non-existent directory (see my message -rfl- (a recent files list for 
Stata): some clarification, reproduced below), I'd like to ask whether it would make sense 
to save the files -rfl- needs (rfl.log and some *.idlg files), which are 
currently saved to the PERSONAL directory, to another 
directory which should be present on every user's computer,
like e.g. plus\r (this one must exist if one was able to install -rfl-).
Or can you see any undesired side-effects?

Thank you
Dankwart Plattner
