If you are placing this into the smcl help file, then it would be
something like this.

{stata phelp `"Stata Help File Template.pdf"'}

And so we now have a Word template (TeX template is yet to be
provided), a way to open it frm inside Stata, and a way from inside
help file and we are good to go. A question is what is the minimum
amount of scml help file that is acceptable to ssc.

Granted it works indirectly for non-Window system, unless someone can
tell me how to do the same for Mac, Linux, Unix, etc.


> prog def phelp
> args one
> qui findfile `"`one'"'
> cap shellout using `"`r(fn)'"'
> di `"{browse `"`r(fn)'"'}"'
> end
> phelp `"Stata Help File Template.pdf"'
