[EpiData-list] EpiC data export fails on STATA8 option

The EpiC command system from 2006 will not be fixed, but we will 
consider developing a similar command line tool with the new system 
functionality (epx).

In other words - until this is done you have to do the process 
repeatedly with the new software, which handles all new versions of 
Stata (at least until v12)

The template parser could be the first part of such a batch/cmd stand 
alone tool.'

I've tested it on two machines: one running Windows Server 2008, and one on Linux (using Wine). The files are converted correctly using EpiData 3.1 GUI.
