Is there a way to generate a succinct list of ado files installed on my
computer that simply lists the ado title and the brief description, but not
the source?

-ado- generates a list with two entries for each ado file: the source, and
the brief description. 


-adolist store- creates a file that contains a complete list of the ado
packages and their sources.  

I am looking for something like -adolist store- (whether it wrote to the
screen, a macro, or a file) that would list the module description line only
as from typing -ado-.  For example:

'ESTOUT':	module	to	make	regression	tables 
'RDCI': module to calculate risk difference confidence intervals
'REVRS': module to reverse variable value order
...
