I use Stata/SE 8.2 and save data in text files with -listtex- from
SSC. When I specify a long header with -listtex, head()- and open the
saved file in a text editor, only the first 502 characters of the
header appear in one line. The additional characters appear in a new
line. The editor itself can display lines with more than 502
characters. The problem can be reproduced with the following

sysuse auto
forvalues i = 1/52 {
  local head "`head'1234567890"
listtex make price using "listtex.txt", head("`head'")

Which limit do I encounter and how can it be overcome? Is this a
limitation of -listtex-, Stata, or Windows XP?
