Hi Nick,

Is there any guide how to implement SMCL directives in a help file. At the moment I have no idea how to do this and what I need to do is just bring one equation in my help file.

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.
