I'm not sure I understand the question. You do not have to specify a

doesn't write anything to disk, unless you have allocated more memory than
you have, but I could be wrong about that.
Hi, I was wondering, if you are writing a .ado file to be used as a stata
add-on, then if you need to do a preserve restore, what is the default to
use as the directory for this? I wasn't sure whether "home" or the temp
files associated with the stata program would be better here.
If you are talking about where to store your own personally written ado
file, I imagine c:\ado\personal (or whatever -adopath- tells you is the
"personal" directory) is probably the most common place.
If I'm not understanding you correctly, perhaps you could clarify exactly
what it is you want.
