Sebastian,

It supposed to search all subdirectories (and I believe it does). What OS you have? I work in Windows and typing something like

.lookfor_all ttt, dir(c:\) sub

forces the program to go through all folders.

Zurab,

I just checked out -lookfor_all- and I was wondering whether
specifying the "subdir" option will actually cause -lookfor_all- to go
through all subdirectories and sub-subdirectories and
sub-sub-subdir...? It looks to me as if -lookfor_all- only checks
first-order subdirectories but does not follow deeper into the path
tree.

Thanks you Kit Baum, updated version of -lookfor_all- is available from SSC
archives.

There was a bug found in the program. The problem was that -lookfor_all-
skipped data files of size bigger then memory allocated to the data area,
without issuing any warning message. As a result the program failed to find
variables/labels matching the pattern in big files.

You can download the corrected version by typing;

adoupdate lookfor_all, update; or
ssc install lookfor_all, replace.

Thanks,
zurab
