Hi Everyone,

I want to announce a new entry in SSC, convert_top_lines.

This program helps clean up the mess left when -insheet- can't gracefully handle some kinds of raw files. This can be used after -insheet-, to neaten the variable names and to assign variable labels, when the second line of the raw data file contains descriptive information suitable for labels, and these values interfered with the functioning of -insheet-.

Thanks to Kit Baum for placing this into the archives.
