Dear statalist,

I am using Stata8 on a Unix machine. 

I am using the a shell to erase some files, but while doing so Stata does 
not find the end of the loop. Why?

Example

foreach x in ? {
        do something
        ! rm ${temp}/*.*
}

Stata does not read the closing bracket. 

Any suggestions?
Hans
