>Hi All,

When using an external text edit program with the stata commands loaded I
find that any loop in the file does not seem to "close," such that syntax
is incorrectly highlighted from the loop forward. Is this something wrong
with the code here:

foreach var of varlist x1 x2 x3 {
capture rename `var' `=lower("`var'")'

It runs fine in Stata but seems to cause a problem with syntax
highlighting, where everything to follow is treated as a comment.

Thanks for any help with this,
