I'm the author of fastcd/c.

I named the program "c" because my entire goal was to have a quick way to change directories, so I wanted the command name to be as short as possible. It was a long time ago, but I believe that the package on SSC was named "fastcd" because SSC could not accommodate a one-letter package name.

The help file should refer to -c- as the command name, not -fastcd-. I'll fix that.

As for the error, do you have write permission to the directory "C:\ado\personal"?

Yes. I also see that the ssc install installs c.ado. I found it very strange to call an ado file c.ado.
When execute according to the fastcd syntax I get the following
. c
no database - type "c cur code" to add the current directory
. c cur code
(note: file c:\ado\personal/directoryfile.txt not found)
file c:\ado\personal/directoryfile.txt could not be opened
r(603);

Something is weird about the command. -ssc d fastcd- shows that the ado is
called c.ado and consequently resides in another directory...
Type -which c- to see that...

I had an installation problem with fastcd.

In Stata
ssc install fastcd  does an install
help fastcd gives information about the fastcd syntax
but
fastcd comes up as an unrecognized command.
When I look in ado/plus/f there is no fastcd.ado file.
I'd appreciate any help fixing the installation.
