Hello - Is it possible to obtain an ordered directory of files from
within Stata? For example in Windows using a command prompt, one can
type 

   dir *.dta /o:d

to get a listing of files in order of modification date.

Apparently the -dir- comand in Stata does not take any sort options. 

Also, typing 

   !dir *.dta /o:d

is useless because the output immediately disappears from the screen.

Any other suggestions to accomplish this within Stata?

Thanks

Al Feiveson
