Dear Jan,

I feel like the 'which' command could be your friend.

You could add something like this to your profile.do:
	---Beginning example---
	foreach package in pkg1 pkg2 pkg3 {
		capture which `package'
		if _rc==111 ssc install `package'
	}
	---End example---

See 'help which' and 'help profile' for more details.


Cheers,
Sven-Oliver
