Maybe, type

. adolist store myadolist, help

then type

. help myadolist

and then copy/past the list of packages from the Viewer. Does this help?

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
...
