Dear Statalisters,

I need to check if the data looks OK - the data should be delimited by
pipe (|) so I want to check if there is any double quote in the data
before I read it into Stata.  The data is in txt format.  I wonder
which are text editors would allow me to open that up.  All
suggestions are welcomed.

Thanks a lot in advance.
