Sorry for delayed responses. I am behind a proxy to send replies.

I was referring to the Panel data/time series/ and other stata books for example. Yes, indeed, I have used -findit- and -help-, and they have been very helpful.

Also books by Stata Press do not have e-versions either; the stata codes and commands can however be downloaded from the stata press website. So I have all those handy.

But once I get used to stata commands and data manipluation in stata, I am sure i will not require the manuals as much I do right now.

As Phil Ryan indicated, when hell freezes over is the expected delivery date of Stata manuals in PDF.

But I don't understand your last sentence -- "this only takes care of one of the reference books." The online help provides help corresponding to all of the Stata manuals' contents, and in some cases goes far beyond the printed manual: e.g. the documentation for much of the graphics system is electronic-only. Furthermore tools such as search and findit will also link to the Stata FAQs if you are working online.

I am aware of the -help command- facility and it is great, but this only
take care of one of the reference books.
