Thanks to Kit Baum, a new package -adodev- is now available for download on SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to do this.

The -adodev- package is described as below on my website. It provides 3 one-word commands (-adodev-, -adoind- and -adofac-), which re-order the ado-file path to start with the various Stata system folders ordered in 3 different ways. This can save the user from typing a lot of potentially hazardous -adopath- commands, especially as the -adofac- command can be used to restore the ordering to its factory settings.

Best wishes

Roger

TITLE
      adodev: Reorder ado-path for developers and other independent-minded users

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      adodev re-orders the ado-file path to start with the Stata system
      folders UPDATES, BASE, ., PERSONAL, PLUS, SITE, and OLDPLACE, in that
      order.  adoind re-orders the ado-file path to start with the Stata
      system folders UPDATES, BASE, PERSONAL, PLUS, SITE, ., and OLDPLACE,
      in that order.  adofac re-orders the ado-file path to start with the
      Stata system folders UPDATES, BASE, SITE, ., PERSONAL, PLUS, and
      OLDPLACE, in that order.  All these commands preserve any existing
      ordering between other folders on the ado-file path.  The adodev
      command was written for development work, and allows the user to
      develop ado-files in the current folder.  The adoind command was
      written for independent-minded users, who think that they can update
      packages faster than their Stata site administrators (if any Stata
      site administrators exist).  The adofac command restores the factory
      setting of the ordering between system folders, as defined in the
      manuals for Stata Version 10.
