This is a beginner's question, I'm sure, but I have not been able to do what
I want to do.
I have a lot of files generated by a separate custom program, all in the
form of *.rtdata. The * denotes the mnemonic for the patient's name. I want
to do some data studies on each file, and have started a .do file to do
that. The .do file name is rtanalysis, and a sample patient file is
smith.rtdata. I would like to type:

"do rtanalalysis smith"

and have the do file open the file "smith.rtdata" and do the analysis I have
written. Can anyone help? Thanks

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable
man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all
progress depends on the unreasonable man.
