For years programmers were struggling to isolate one program from
another, so that a text editor does not "accidentially" edit your
banking account, etc. It seems that Microsoft has done a good job, and
now Windows programs crash independently, not all at once as they used

Stata (program) does not know anything about UltraEdit's existence,
purpose or interface. How can it send lines there directly? Or does UE
support Windows pipes? COM? Shared memory? What if you have two UE
windows open? Where should Stata send text? Etc, etc, etc.

To send your lines to UltraEdit or any other editor:
1) right-click somewhere in review window
2a) in Stata 9: select "copy review contents to clipboard" (don't know
why it was capitalized in the program?)
2b) in Stata 10: select "select all", then select "copy" or "cut"
3) Switch to UltraEdit, and paste.
