Dear all, if I use a delimiter ; to end my lines a following comment line beginning with // has to be preceded by a space, otherwise Stata will return an error message. 

By searching the Statalist I found another user reporting this problem back in 2004, see http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2004-07/msg00268.html so I was a bit puzzled that Stata 10 (my version) has not fixed it yet and does not even indicate it in the comment HELP. Is this a bug or is there a way to get around the problem? 

Mario
