You can get the path and filename of a currently open log file by using the
-log- command.  The path and filename of a currently open command log file can
be obtained by using the -cmdlog- command.  When these commands are issued with
no arguments, the path and filename are stored in the saved results.

. log
       log:  /home/srd/mylog.smcl, on
  log type:  smcl

. return list

macros:
              r(type) : "smcl"
            r(status) : "on"
          r(filename) : "/home/srd/mylog.smcl"

. cmdlog
    cmdlog:  /home/srd/mycmdlog.txt, on

. return list

macros:
              r(type) : "text"
            r(status) : "on"
          r(filename) : "/home/srd/mycmdlog.txt"
