	. list in 50000/50010

takes 0.01 seconds in my test database, whereas

	. list

takes over 4 seconds to begin.

The following takes about 0.17 seconds:

	. list if inrange(_n,20000,20035)

campared with:

	. generage rand=uniform()
	. list if rand>.9999

which takes about 0.18 seconds to list in my sample dataset,

How can I make Stata 8 display the time it takes from the moment I hit
<ENTER> after issuing a -list- command until the results are displayed?

Thank you in advance.
