st: StatTransfer Questions

I am new to StatTransfer 10; used prior versions under Win98 without difficulty. Running Mac OSX.10.6.N.

(1) running a command files from the Run Program window, this line still prompts for permission to overwrite. I would like to run a batch file of regular conversions and have ST overwrite without asking. 

copy /Users/caleb/Dropbox/union_pop/odf/long_bls_giff/bls_1946.xls /Users/caleb/Dropbox/union_pop/orig/bls_1946.dta /y ocd 

(2) How do I submit a batch file to run in ST from the command prompt? 

That is, I open the terminal shell and type

st filename.cmd

or similarly 

d109-244:StatTransfer10 caleb$ st /Users/caleb/Dropbox/union_pop/st/bls.stcmd
-bash: st: command not found

That is, I don't seem to be able to invoke st either from its directory or elsewhere.
