How do I solve my programming problem?

The India Human Development Surveys are placed in public domain as a public resource and most users find that they need little support in using these data. This is fortunate because due to resource limitations we are unable to provide any support to the users. Hence we try to create an FAQ section on www.ihds.info for questions that are of general utility. For other questions, particularly programming related questions we are unable to provide any support. We hope you will understand our constraints.
