We have had discussions about the -request()- option before:

Greetings

   In a recent post, Carl had troubles using "display _request()". I 
have need for this and am also having troubles with this.

   I have a simple do-file named test.do

---- test.do ----
display "What is your name?" _request(yourname)
display "`yourname'"
---- test.do ----

   When I run this, I expect it to display my name back. But this is 
what I get...


. do test.do
. display "What is your name?" _request(yourname)
What is your name?. Michael
. display "`yourname'"


.
.
end of do-file

   Am I using this incorrectly? Can anyone else confirm this as a problem?

Many thanks,

Michael
