The current help file says something about the need to let the user
manually apply infix.

A new option, fixcut( ) will handle this. The new version also comes
with range( ) option that is basically -chewfile- running from the
inside.

 -logout- will now display something like the following after every
fixed method so that if you don't like it then you can change the
numbers the next time around.

fixcut(11 16 27 38 45 50 67)

I should add that they should CONSECUTIVE NUMBERS.

The new version should be up on ssc.

    * The following three are equivalent:
    webuse dose, clear
    tab dose function, col
    chewfile using mylog.txt, begin(10) end(.) save(chewed.txt) replace
    logout, use(chewed.txt) clear fix
    logout, save(C:\mytable) tex excel replace

    webuse dose, clear
    logout, save(C:\mytable) tex excel replace range(10/.) fix: tab
dose function, col

    webuse dose, clear
    logout, save(C:\mytable) tex excel replace range(10/.) fixcut(11
16 27 38 45 50 67): tab dose function, col
