I get an error there:

***
ssc install texdoc
set trace on
texdoc init example, replace
***

returns:


---- begin texdoc ---
- version 9.2
- gettoken subcmd 0 : 0, parse(", ")
- local length = length(`"`subcmd'"')
= local length = length(`"init"')
- if `"`subcmd'"'==substr("init",1,max(`length',1)) {
= if `"init"'==substr("init",1,max(4,1)) {
- texdoc_init`macval(0)'
= texdoc_init example, replace
  -------------- begin texdoc.texdoc_init ---
  - syntax anything(id="document name" equalok everything) [, Replace

  - capt which sjlatex
  - if _rc {
    di as err "-sjlatex- package is required. To install the package, 
type"
    di _n `"    {stata "net install sjlatex,

    di ""
    exit 499
    }
  - mata: texdoc_init(st_local("anything"), st_local("prefix"))
  - mata: mm_outsheet(st_global("TeXdoc_docname"), J(0, 0, ""),

  = mata: mm_outsheet(st_global("TeXdoc_docname"), J(0, 0, ""), "replace")
           mm_outsheet():  3499  mm_strexpand() not found
                 <istmt>:     -  function returned error
  --------------- end texdoc.texdoc_init ---
  }
---- end texdoc ---
r(3499);


Am I missing something?

Stata 10.1, WinXP
