-inputst- is from Roger Newson's package -stcmd-, available in various places. 

You can modify any of those programs if you like, but that modified program then becomes your responsibility. But I think it's much easier to do this in other ways. For example, with -renvars- from the Stata Journal, 

. renvars, lower 

is all you need. Type -findit renvars- and download from the SJ 5-4 files.

I am importing a SAS 9.2 dataset into Stata using the inputst command.  While I can import the data fine using inputst, the SAS variable names are a mixture of upper case and lower case, and I would like to have them to all be lower case in Stata.  I know which StatTransfer Command Processor commands that I want to use, but I am having difficulty understanding how (and whether) I can modify the inputst and/or stcmd .ado files to force all imported variable names to be lower case.  Any help would be much appreciated!
