Thanks to Kit Baum, a new version of the -stcmd- package is now available for download from SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to do this, or -adoupdate- if you already have an old version of -stcmd-.

The -stcmd- package calls Stat/Transfer from within Stata (if the user has Stat/Transfer installed), and is described as below on my website. The new version still has the same ado-files as before, but the on-line help has been updated to allow for changes introduced in Version 10 of Stat/Transfer. I would like to thank Dmitry Basko of Circle Systems (the makers of Stat/Transfer) for some helpful advice on this update of -stcmd-.

Best wishes

      stcmd: Run the Stat/Transfer st command from inside Stata

The program stcmd runs the Stat/Transfer st command from inside Stata, if Stat/Transfer is installed on the user's system. Stat/Transfer converts
      data sets from one format to another (eg Stata to/from R). It is
available from Stata Corporation and manufactured by Circle Systems, and
      further information can be found at The
program inputst converts an existing non-Stata input file into a Stata dataset in the memory, overwriting any existing data. The program outputst
      converts the Stata dataset in the memory to a newly-created non-Stata
output file. The programs inputst and outputst require stcmd, and therefore
      should not be downloaded alone. If the Stat/Transfer directory on the
user's system is not on the user's default path, then the user must set the global macro StatTransfer_path to contain the path for the Stat/Transfer st command, possibly in the file (see on-line help for details).
