Hello fellow statalisters -

I just recently started using Notepad++ and am very happy with the
editor (especially after figuring out how to run do-lines from within
the program http://s281191135.onlinehome.us/2008/20080427-stata.html).

However, one thing that would be really great to have from a text
editor is an automatically generated Table of Contents. For example, I
frequently write my do-files in indented sections (e.g., prepare data,
clean data, analysis 1, etc.). Some LaTeX editors make use of the
section/subsection declarations to create a Table of Contents that you
can see and point-click to while editting.

Are there any text editors that utilize indentation to show the first
level or two of heirarchy so that I could have a sense of the whole
do-file? Also - even if you don't know of any text editors, are there
any tips that people who write their do-files in sections have to
offer for keeping track of the structure of very lengthy do-files?

Thanks in advance,
Dana
