> One trick is to intersperse commands to do things with -more-.

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

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

Ed.


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