Text editors that can hook Stata and run programs or portions of code
from the edit window do so by copying the code to a temporary file and
running it like a regular do file.  A program that just tries to paste
code straight into the command window is doomed to fail when it
encounters comments.

For example when I chose [do all/selected] in my text editor, Notetab,
what appears in the Stata command window is something like:
-do "C:\DOCUME~1\DAVIDE~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\efo6BF.tmp"- the name of the
temporary do file created.
