Phil Schumm presented something along the similar lines of combining LaTeX code with Stata code at one of the NASUGs, two or three years ago. I am happy with producing all my tables using -estout- and then \input{}ing them. I am OK with hitting some buttons twice. The thing is, if a person has figured out LaTeX, they would be able to figure out -file- and all that to produce whatever formatting they need. But I would guess that on statalist, 75% of people copy/paste their results to Word, and it is evene worse in the Big World of Stata users where the ratio will more likely be 90% to 10%. The LaTeX base is there, it is active, but hardly overwhelming. I would imagine that with R users, the situation is likely to be reverse: LaTeX is pretty much a prerequisite to writing a dissertation with more than 10 formulas in it... and most (bio)statistics or econometrics dissertations would probably exceed that limit. And that's where R is sitting.

This is obviously notjust forLaTeX since ODT formats were mentioned in StatWeave above, but XMLreallyopens the can. -Davee On Feb 23, 2009, at 8:28 AM, David Airey wrote:.Here one of R's own pushes to forget about Sweave in favor of XML.Thatmight be a direction for Stata to go in, since XML is open and allwe mightthink about is a comparable routine to Sxslt (http://www.omegahat.org/Sxslt/).http://www.stat.auckland.ac.nz/~paul/Talks/litdocbrief.pdf-Dave On Feb 23, 2009, at 7:27 AM, David Airey wrote:. From the developer's page, which makes little sense to me as to whythere is no direct support on the Mac, as the format of the graphcan be PDFor EPS, which is what is required for LaTeX. I guess he is talkingaboutOpenOffice.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 supportedfor ODT source/target files, because ODT does not support EPS orPDF.For the same reason, for a LaTeX source file, you can't directlygetgraphics when the target is PDF. One way to work around this is toconfigure appropriate graphics-format converters (Manual Section6.4).For Linux LaTeX with a PDF target, an alternative is to make theDVItarget, then convert that to PDF using dvipdf, dvipdfm, or similar.
