thank you very much,professor Williams.

although "dir/s c:\stata8\ado\*.ado" doesn't work, i really appreciate your help.
To be clear, from within Stata you would first give the command


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.
