I tried -ssc install wdireshape- and I got this:

. ssc install wdireshape
checking wdireshape consistency and verifying not already installed...
file not found
could not copy
(no action taken)

ssc install: apparent error in package file for wdireshape; please notify
[email protected], providing package name

Any idea what's wrong?
