Anyone have any insight on -quietly- making calls to operating system

shell. Any ideas on workarounds? I am running both stata (SE 8.2) for
windows and unix. I have some second best solutions (such as treating the
symptoms by turning the log on and off at appropriate times to minimze the
size of the log file) but was hoping to treat the disease.

thanks in advance-

One can always send the output from the command to hyperspace----

. !ls -la >/dev/null

produces nothing but another dot prompt.
