Hello Stata users who need to deal with long macro strings (longer than 244 characters).

My Stata command -lstrfun- (long string function) is designed to make the Mata string functions available to users outside of Mata when dealing with long
macro strings.

Since I recently discovered that Mata in Stata 11 added the string functions:
I added these options to -lstrfun- but named regexs() as regexms() since regexs()
has to be used with regexm().  My updated help file explains how to use the new

Thanks to Kit Baum, the updated version of -lstrfun- is now available on the SSC:

 . ssc install lstrfun, replace

And, thanks to Eric Booth for beta testing the updated version of -lstrfun- for me

Let me know if you have any Qs.
