Dear Statalist,

Thanks to Kit Baum, -dirlist- is now available for download from SSC.
The command retrieves directory information and saves it in return macros.
It has been tested on Mac OS X, Windows XP and one flavour of Unix (Linux),
but is reported not to work on Sun Solaris and some WIndows systems with
non-standard date and time settings. I will try to look into this.

To install type

. ssc install dirlist

Kind regards,


package dirlist from
      'DIRLIST': module to retrieve directory information

      dirlist ("Directory List") is used as the 'dir' command, but
      retrieves the information about files in in return macros.
      Directory data are written to a temporary file using shell
      commands (Windows dir and Mac OSX/Linux/Unix ls) and subsequently
      read by the program.
