Thanks to Nick for his post. I thnk I answered my own question, but my
hack might be useful to other Mac Users. As it turns out, the
stcmd.ado installed by the PC version of stat/transfer can easily be
modified to work on a mac. Here is the program:
--------------------------
#delim ;
prog def stcmd;
version 6.0;
*
Run the Stat/Transfer st command
with parameters and switches supplied by the user.

*shell "C:\Program Files\StatTransfer8\st" `0' ;
shell /Applications/StatTransfer/st.command `0' ;

end;
---------------------------

The only thing to note is that statements like

stcmd essai.xls stata/se essai.dta /y /t

will need to be modified to read:

stcmd essai.xls stata/se essai.dta -y -t


The ability to Stat/Transfer files from within stata is certainly
convenient. Once you start relying on it, it will be hard to give up!
