If you want to allow say


to be abbreviatable as


you would need to release two or more ado files, In particular,
myprog.ado could contain in its entirety

program myprog
            myprogram `0'

If you want to allow -myprogra-, -myprogr- as well each of those
abbreviations requires a separate .ado file too.

Equations can be indicated using text or SMCL directives. You would
need to provide a link to files containing anything else. For example,
Stata doesn't support TeX ir HTML mark-up in help files.
