Jamie,

Thank you for your effort. Sometimes I use Stata format as an intermediate
as Stata datasets contains all the data dictionary. However, for data
management within clinical research (such as checking for duplicates, NAs
fields, inconsistencies and so on)  doing repetitive procedures manually is
not that effective.

Have you ever thought to share this development effort with the R core
team? The R guys which developed and maintain the foreign package?

Regards,

Dr. Pedro Emmanuel A. A. do Brasil
