I'm trying to get the list of links in this website ( as a list in a text file.
I tried using -copy- to save it a text file but naturally, it saves it as messy html and importing it into Stata fails because the strings are too long.
I tried -insheet- with some delimiters but it doesn't seem to like this giving a r(198) error.
I found some html related programs using -findit- but none seem to relate to reading in html, just spitting out html.

Does anyone know a clever way to do this in Stata? I'm running out of ideas, I might have to look into writing a console application that does it so that my program can shell out to it when it needs to fetch the list of links as a text file.
