Hi,

I am the author of dirlist.ado (available at SSC) and I have unfortunately
no solution. Apparently this is a Windows problem, because -dirlist- can
be used without problems in a do file started in batch mode (Terminal or
shell command) with Stata 11.2 on Mac OS X.

In http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2010-01/msg00539.html Sergiy
Radyakin suggests "Authors of such user-written commands might want to
signal in the help file or package description whether the command is safe
to use in the Stata's batch mode".

Very reasonable - I will update the help file when I post a new version to
the SSC.

Best regards,

Morten Andersen
