Subject: st: Dropping programs

I'm trying to debug an ado file. Every time I make a change and save the file, I have to drop the program or use the -discard- command or else the old version in memory still gets used by Stata. But, I thought if I started the program with
-capture program drop myprog-, e.g.
capture program drop myprog
program define myprog
Then Stata would load the current version from disk rather than use the version in memory. But that is not happening., i.e. every time I make a change I have to discard or drop the old version. Am I missing something obvious? Thanks for any help.
