It would be my guess that Stata is (incorrectly) interpreting 
a mistake in your do file as a class type specifier.  
Most likely you have something in your file of the form:
 
     .xxx.yyy

If so, Stata will think this is a class specifier.

You can read about classes in the [P] manual under entry "class".

Most likely, though, you do not want or need a class specifier.
If you need help in debugging your do file, include a copy of it
in another message along with the error messages and a description
of what you are trying to do and perhaps we can help you.
