A good place to start reading about Stata and text editors is

which gives a summary (edited by Nick Cox and with input from multiple Stata users about their favorite text editors) of the possibilities available, including add-ons.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes

Dear Statalisters,

I am using Notepad++ (v6.2.2) together with the excellent syntax
highlighting provided by the notepad-stats-integration website (*).
There are a few places where the syntax highlighting mis-fires,
though, in particular dealing with comments and compound double

It would be fantastic if StataCorp or a skilled individual were to
develop a plugin for Notepad++ (or other FOSS text editor) that
replicated the syntax highlighting of the Stata do-file editor exactly
- or better yet provided additional features such as auto-complete,
matched braces, etc.
