We're almost there. I tried this, and got the following
. gs_fileinfo "/Users/ronanconroy/Documents/Consult files/Richard
. di r(command)
twoway (line __00000H __00000I _t, sort connect(J ...) ylabel(0(.25)1,

There is an obvious problem: the graph (A Kaplan-Meier) is described in
terms of the variables that Stata calculated, and the underlying command
(-twoway-) not the original command syntax that I used (-sts graph-).
However, the other information returned is very useful indeed. So much so
that I am surprised that Stata doesn't have a menu item saying 'get graph
info' rather than an undocumented command!
With a little modification, however, it is clear that Stata could capture,
verbatim, the command used to generate a graph. What it captures right now
is maddeningly close...
