Abstract: usepackage finds and installs user-written packages that are needed to run a do-file. When sharing a do-file that contains calls to user-written commands from SSC or elsewhere, you can use usepackage to include a list of packages rather than writing a series of net install or ssc install commands to install a list of user-written packages (or instructing the user to find and install a list of packages via commands like findit or search). usepackage is particularly useful when user-written packages come from locations other than the SSC Archives because usepackage first searches the SSC and then if it does not find a match it searches other internet locations (e.g., those searched by net search by default), including but not limited to user-written additions published in the Stata Journal (SJ) and the Stata Technical Bulletin (STB).
