" does the Do-file editor show up as a separate item or process?"



The do-file editor does show up as a separate application in the
"Applications" tab of the Task Manager, but when you kill it, you also bring
down all of Stata.

"(which as Martin indicates is a separate process under Windows)"


Does that mean that I can kill it separately, thus preserving my precious
main process which may hold important data? (Weird that I should ask Kit for
Windows advice, is it not :-) )

In your "Task Manager" or whatever it is called, does the Do-file editor
show up as a separate item or process? It does not do so in Unix (incl
Linux, Mac OS X) implementations of Stata, where it is part of the Stata
process.

I have no idea whether Windows 7 "Ultimate" is able to do what Unix of any
flavor was capable of doing ~25 years ago with the "kill -9 pid" superuser
command. One would hope that the Microsoft developers would have caught up
by now with the notion of processes that do not generally have the
capability to stomp on each other's memory space, or take other processes
down when they die or hang. Of course, no software is perfect, which is why
we get occasional "kernel panics" in Unix systems, sort of like the infamous
"blue screen of death" for Windows. I think I had a kernel panic in 2007 on
one of my ~5 Unix systems.
