# Support materials for An Introduction to Stata Programming

You can download the do-files and datasets for An Introduction to Stata Programming from within Stata using the net command. At the Stata prompt, type

      . net from http://www.stata-press.com/data/itsp
. net get itsp-do
. net get itsp-data


After installing the files, type spinst_itsp to obtain all the user-written commands used in the book's examples. You should check the messages produced by the spinst_itsp command. If there are any error messages, follow the instructions at the bottom of the output to complete the download.

If you do not have an Internet connection from within Stata, you can download one of the following files:

 itsp.zip PKZIP format, 6.9M itsp.tar.Z Unix tar.Z format 13M

We suggest that you create a new directory and copy the materials there.

One of the files included within .zip and .tar.Z, spinst_itsp, will install all the user-written commands used in the book's examples when you type spinst_itsp. However, you must be connected to the Internet for this command to work.
