You can have Stata remind you in intervals of your choosing. Just go to Edit
- Preferences - General Preferences - Tab "Internet", check the box at the
bottom.

Betreff: RE: AW: st: replace-all can crash do-file

Yes, I still get a crash when "regular expression" is checked, but no crash
when it isn't checked.

Re the update, I stand guilty as charged (by Kit). I haven't gotten in the
habit of regularly doing an -update all-. But I promise to do so in the
future before going to statalist with a question.

I hope I can at least partially make it up with this: 
http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/data/regex.html
Here is all the information about what regular expressions are, and what
they do in stata. I just tried them out. For example, if you type ^[0-9]+ 
in the "find what" box, it finds all expressions of a series of digits in
the do file. But it only find those digit series that are at the very
beginning of a line, not those that are somewhere in the middle of a line,
or even those that start at a line after one space. The website above goes
into much more details on regular expressions in stata.
