I agree with Neil's advice, and I would especially emphasize looking
at other people's ado files. Also, if you ever get into more heavy

There are a number of ways of learning Stata...
Stata Journal 5(4) had a very nice piece by Nick Cox entitled
"Suggestions on Stata programming style." I believe Nick posted a
sort of pre-publication version of it on Statalist at one point, but
I don't recall exactly when it was or how the thread was labeled.
