thank you very much,professor Williams.
To be clear, from within Stata you would first give the command
although "dir/s c:\stata8\ado\*.ado" doesn't work, i really appreciate
This should open up a DOS window for you, at which point you give the dir
command. From within Stata, the dir command is not working right because,
unlike DOS, the /s (subdirectory) option is not supported. You get all
these "file not found" messages because there are no ado files in
c:\stata8\ado; the ado files are all in the subdirectories.
You could, of course, do this, or something like this, from outside of
Stata as well. For example, from Windows open up My Computer, then get to
c:\stata8\ado, then click search, and search for *.ado. Unless there is
some compelling reason that you want this list from within Stata, this
seems like the best way to me.
