Re: st: Programs to integrate Stata with an external text editor

Rundo and rundolines make it possible to send commands from an
external text editor directly to Stata. Instructions for integration
of Notepad++ with Stata are on my website. Rundo and rundolines have
also been reported to work with ConTEXT, Crimson Editor, EditPlus,
EmEditor, gVim, Hidemaru, jEdit, PSPad, SciTE, TextPad, TeXnicCenter,
UltraEdit, Vim and WinEdt.

If you are using version 3 of rundo and rundolines and want to upgrade
to version 4, please follow the steps below. An upgrade is only
necessary if you use Stata 12.

- Backup the EXE and INI files of rundo and rundolines.
- Download version 4 of the programs.
- Replace the old EXE and INI files with the new versions.
- Edit the INI files according to the instructions on my website.

No changes to your text editor or Stata are required if you are
upgrading from version 3 to version 4. The new version adds an option
in the INI files: "statacmd" defines the keyboard shortcut to the
Stata command window (Ctrl+4 in Stata 8 to 11, Ctrl+1 in Stata 12).
All other functions of rundo and rundolines remain the same.
