As in 


*************
local required_ados "example1.ado" 

foreach x of local required_ados {
	 findfile `x'.ado
}
*************

which leads to 


file "example1.ado.ado" not found
r(601)


So even if the ado was there, your loop would install anyway...

Would the ".ado" suffix not appear twice, then, once from the members of the
-local- which are entered into "`x'" in the loop, and once from your manual
addition?

How about this?

local required_ados " example1.ado example2.ado" //add the required ados
here//
foreach x of local required_ados {
capture findfile `x'.ado		
if _rc==601 {
ssc install `x'

Hope this helps
Rajesh

Subject: st: Check whether ado file is installed

Dear Stata list,

I work on different computers and would Stata to automatically check
whether a number of ado-files is installed on a local machine. My idea
was to write something like

[a command which checks whether one ado-file is installed / or not]
if package!=installed {
    ssc install package
}

My problem is basically to find a command which (1) checks whether an
ado file is installed and (2)  gives me a local as return.

Best regards,

Jan
