Nick writes "When a graph command gets complicated, I tend to copy it to the do-file editor and space it out so that I can see the structure. If it looks worth keeping, keep it as a do-file." I've often created circumstances where a project do-file gets very long and unwieldy. Are there any books/articles that provide architectural guidance on how to build multi-part Stata projects (i.e. data import, prep, analysis and graphing) so that it's more manageable?
