I started writing a work-around, got some way with -file-

A -findit- then revealed that Roger Newson had taken every
such step before, and many more.

See -intext- on SSC.

Many thanks, Nick. I had been fooling around with -pad- which you wrote for Stata 4! My next problem, which was how to append all the text files to a master file, is taken care of by -intext-, however, suggesting that Roger has had exactly the problem I have.
