Then I go to the shell in my directory and convert the eps file into jpeg. I tried converting the eps into jpeg using unix 'convert' command inside the script(do-file). Stata doesn't allow and throws back unrecognized command. This makes sense because 'convert' is a unix command, not stata. Is there a way to have a unix command in stata do-file?
