Subject   st: Using _request() when copy pasting from external editor
Date   Thu, 3 Oct 2013 21:43:32 +0800 (SGT)

Hello everyone,

A simplified version of my code is below (I use Stata 10.1)

*********************************************************
sysuse auto
di "Enter value (0/1): " _request(a)
sum if foreign==$a
*********************************************************


The above works when I "Do" the file from the Stata Do-file editor but if I copy paste the lines from an external editor, Stata does not wait for the user input. Is there a way to make this work when I copy paste?

Thank you
Hari
