Hey folks,

I (finally) got the emacs ado-mode I had written for Stata upgraded to 
deal with the new stuff in Stata 8. (Translation: emacs is a text editor 
which could be used for editing ado, do, smcl, hlp files and the like.)

Just as before, it has context-sensitive highlighting, automatic 
indentation of blocks, and templates for writing help files. 

Unlike before, it's much more customizable both on the global level (via 
emacs' customization routines) as well as locally (file by file). Unlike 
before, it allows easy customization of indentation style, handling of 
hanging indentation after continuations and all the font coloring.

If you want to check it out to see what it is good for, go to

If you want to install it, go to

and snag the whole ado-mode folder.

The installation instructions are at
