In this thread I'm opening discussion of what is available in terms of approaches comparable to Sweave with Stata. This is obviously not just for LaTeX since ODT formats were mentioned in StatWeave above, but XML really opens the can.

Here one of R's own pushes to forget about Sweave in favor of XML. That might be a direction for Stata to go in, since XML is open and all we might think about is a comparable routine to Sxslt (http://www.omegahat.org/Sxslt/ ).

From the developer's page, which makes little sense to me as to why there is no direct support on the Mac, as the format of the graph can be PDF or EPS, which is what is required for LaTeX. I guess he is talking about OpenOffice.

Stata:
-----
* Available graphics formats are platform-dependent:
  Linux: EPS only
  Mac: PDF and EPS
  Windows: PNG and EPS
Thus, except on Windows, Stata graphics are NOT directly supported
for ODT source/target files, because ODT does not support EPS or PDF.
For the same reason, for a LaTeX source file, you can't directly get
graphics when the target is PDF.  One way to work around this is to
configure appropriate graphics-format converters (Manual Section 6.4).
For Linux LaTeX with a PDF target, an alternative is to make the DVI
target, then convert that to PDF using dvipdf, dvipdfm, or similar.

I did find this of course, but wanted to know about real world experiences...

I am also wondering if Bill Rising is improving the rough edges of StatWeave with regard to Stata use alluded to in the talk.

Has anyone used StatWeave <http://www.stat.uiowa.edu/~rlenth/StatWeave/ > to make LaTeX documents on Apple OS X Leopard with Stata 10? Has anyone used StatWeave with Stata at all?
