Nick and other Stata users,

You can run selected lines of code directly from your text editor,
without having to copy and paste. This can be done with an AutoIt
script that is described in the text editors FAQ:

http://fmwww.bc.edu/repec/bocode/t/textEditors.html#autoit

The document contains two scripts. The script for running individual
lines from a text editor is called rundolines.au3.

I just noticed that the links to download the scripts don't work.
Here are two other sites with the same document and with the correct
links:

http://huebler.info/2005/20050310_Stata_editor.html
http://huebler.blogspot.com/2005/03/integrating-stata-and-external-text.html

The AutoIt scripts work with Stata 7 and Stata 8 but it should not be
difficult to modify them for use with Stata 9.
