Courtesy of Kit Baum, the package -dirtools- have been updated on SSC.
The update implemented further features, two new programs and revisions
of help files. Type 

. adoupdate dirtools, update

to update an already installed package of -dirtools-, or

. ssc install dirtools

to install the package the first time. 

New commands

o lado 

-lado- is developed for ado programmers. It returns a list of ado files
stored in the working directory or in any other directory that has been
set as the "ado development directory". Along with the file names, the
programs offer a list of click-able links for some typical tasks that
one wants to do for own ado files.
Specifically, -lado- provides links for viewing and editing each ado
file. If a help file exists links for getting help and editing the help
file are also provided.

o ldir

-ldir- lists the names of folders or directories in compact form and
allow to click on the names to make it the working directory. -ldir- is
build from Nick Cox's program folders available on SSC. I would like to
thank Nick Cox for allowing me to distribute -ldir- on SSC

New features

o The programs -lall-, -lado-, -ldir-, -ldo-, -ldta-, -lgph-, -lscml-,
and -ltex- now allow the specification of a filename or directory stub.
If specified, only files starting with that stub are listed.

o -ldir- saves back the listed directories in r(folders), all other
programs  save back the listed files in r(files). 

Many regards
