Dear all,

A small bug-fix has been applied to the two packages such that a long list of variable names can now be used when opening a compressed dataset. Thanks to Kit Baum for updating the packages.

Best,

Henrik

PS: The commands may be obtained via the commands -search gzsave, all- or -search zipsave, all-. Briefly the packages allow saving and opening compressed datasets straightforwardly from within Stata. Brief descriptions of the packages are:

zipsave from http://fmwww.bc.edu/RePEc/bocode/z
'ZIPSAVE': module to save and use datasets compressed by zip - this module allows you to save and use datasets compressed by zip on WindowsXP/Unix/Linux/Macintosh in order to save disk space and network load. Shares syntax with Stata's -save-, -saveold- / and -use- commands.

gzsave from http://fmwww.bc.edu/RePEc/bocode/g
'GZSAVE': module to save and use datasets compressed by gzip - these routines allow to save and use datasets compressed by gzip in order to save disk space and network load. They share syntax with / Stata's save, saveold and use commands.
