Jean Salvati (JSalvati@imf.org) asked about updating a license file under
Linux:

Under Unix/Linux, a separate program named -stinit- is used to initialize
Stata.  To update the license (for example, after adding additional
users to a network license), the old license file needs to be renamed
and a new one created with -stinit-.  This should typically be done
as root:

    % su
    # cd /usr/local/stata9
    # mv stata.lic stata.oldlic
    # ./stinit
