or save the following as domore.ado where stata can find it and call it with 
the full filename: domore 

(all commands should be on a single line though and multiline comments are not 
welcome either I think)


program define domore
args fn
tempname fh
file open `fh' using `"`fn'"', read
file read `fh' line
while r(eof)==0 {
	di as input ". `line'"
	file read `fh' line
file close `fh'
