You need to find out about the -syntax- and -args- commands. In Stata,
type

whelp syntax

to find more about -syntax-, and

whelp args

to find more about -args-.

The hardcopy documentation is in the Stata Programming Manual under -[P]
syntax-. You should probably read this manual, if you have access to a
copy. Unfortunately, the Programming Manual is no longer shipped as part
of the base documentation set, and users have to order it specially. So
you may possibly have to do the best you can with the online help.

Best wishes

Roger

Subject: st: parameter handover in .ado file

Hi everybody,

I was trying to do write my own little .ado program, but encountered
some problems while doing that.
Hopefully you can help me out here.

How do you hand over the parameters you enter when calling an .ado
program?

E.g. you type: programname if parameter1 parameter2 parameter3

How can i address the values entered for parameter1, parameter2, etc. in
the .ado file?

Thank you.

Steffen.
