I guess I don't know what I'm missing. I use and don't mind the Stata do editor. I also think the Mac R Gui is OK.

I may try to switch completely to vim after reading:

and finding development of:

Chris,

integrating Stata's output is - like you've stated - impossible to achieve.

But you can define a global key that sends your selected lines from emacs to Stata using AppleScript (email me if you want it). I use this combination all the time since Stata's editor is a royal pain..... Plus I like to have just one editor for my R, Bugs and Stata programming.

Best,

Daniel

Hi,

I think

http://fmwww.bc.edu/repec/bocode/t/textEditors.html#emacs

is a good start.

However, I guess interactive mode in emacs not possible at this time.

It says:

"Currently, ESS does not support Stata to the same extent that it supports SAS and R. This is primarily due to the power that it has for handling I/O, and because recent versions of Stata (v7 and up) want to control this as much as possible."

I'm using emacs as well, as stata's built in editor is really a pain.

I'd be happy to learn about an alternative editor for stata which is capable of interactive mode, in particular for Mac OS X.

Thanks,

Christ

Hi,

Could somebody please suggest a reference/website that

might help me in understanding how to use ESS to make

Stata interactive in GNU emacs? I'm new to emacs and

successfully use it interactively with R, but want to

do the same with Stata. That is, run lines of code

from within emacs and have the output dumped into a

buffer. ESS was written specifically for this, but I

cannot figure out how to interact with Stata (v.9.2).

Thanks very much!!

Rob
