st: New version of -rtfutil- (again) on SSC

Date   Tue, 19 Feb 2013 07:28:40 +0000

Thanks once again to Kit Baum, a new version of the -rtfutil- package (superseding last week's version) is now available for download from SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to do this, or -adoupdate- if you already have an old version of -rtfutil-.

The -rtfutil- package is described as below on my website. The new version adds a new value -template(fnmono2)- for the -template()- option of -rtfopen-. This specifies a monochrome, language-neutral RTF document, with a header of the form

FILE_NAME, # CURRENT_PAGE_NUMBER / NUMBER_OF_PAGES

This new -template()- option uses some proprietary Microsoft RTF to specify the NUMBER_OF_PAGES. RTF files produced using -template(fnmono2)- may therefore possibly not be portable to RTF-compatible word processors other than Microsoft Word. However, they will be useful to users (like my immediate superiors) who prefer their documents to be Microsoft and also frequently print them out, exposing themselves to the risk of scattering pages over the floor and/or losing some of them.

Best wishes

Roger

TITLE
      rtfutil: Utilities for writing Rich Text Format (RTF) files

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      The rtfutil package is a suite of file handling utilities for
      producing Rich Text Format (RTF) files in Stata, possibly
      containing plots and tables.  These RTF files can then be
      opened by Microsoft Word, and possibly by alternative free
      word processors.  The plots can be included by inserting, as
      linked objects, graphics files that might be produced by the
      graph export command in Stata.  The tables can be included by
      using the listtab command, downloadable from SSC, with the
      handle() option.
