Does Stata allow writing a perl script inside a do or ado file sth like following
shell vi perl1
The reason is because I have a xml file( in excel format) which contains certain strings which need to be found and replaced with other strings. I have a feeling since stata can't do that or limited, I am thinkingh to use perl to accomplish it.
