st: -dta2sav- on SSC

Thanks to Kit Baum there is a new .ado on SSC.

-dta2sav- creates SPSS syntax and a Stata data file to convert Stata data into SPSS data. Extended missing values which are labeled will be recoded into "numeric" values which will be defined as missing by using SPSS syntax commands created by -dta2sav-. This allows to preserve labels of missing values as defined in Stata for subsequent use in SPSS.

As a side note: It might seem that by writing this .ado I would try to stimulate the move from Stata to SPSS. To the contrary, I intend to to enable users to work with Stata even though their colleagues are still using SPSS.
