Edit the ado-file that runs the specified command


adoedit cmdname



adoedit attempts to edit whichever ado-file named cmdname.ado is first on the current adopath.  One cannot edit files larger than 32,000 bytes in the do-file editor, nor can one edit built-in commands. This routine is designed for use by those who are writing their own ado-files; users are exhorted to make a copy of any official ado-files, and to save modified official ado-files in the ado directory, rather than the Stata directory.
adoedit cmdname.ado
Specifying the ado file extension is tolerated.

After a successful edit, the discard command is issued so that Stata will load the revised ado-file.  This will also clear any estimates from the last estimation.

If you wish to edit ado-files with a different text editor, please see fedit and the texteditors modules on the SSC archive.



 .  adoedit tsspell
