There are two distinct steps: 

1. Define the program.

2. Run it. 

Here is another example: 

. program define xiaotang
  1. di "Hi there!" 
  2. end 

. xiaotang
Hi there!

I defined a program called "xiaotang"; 
then I ran it. (This is possible because there 
is no official Stata command called -xiaotang-.) 

See [U] 21 Programming Stata.
