How can i perform a one sided test after a linear regression?

regress y x1 x2
i want to test if the coefficient of x2 is greater than 0

This test would be insig. at 10% level or better as a two-tailed test,
. di ttail(74,1.36)
indicates that a t of this (absolute) magnitude would allow us to test
that the coeff is negative with a significance level of 91+%, that is,
signif. at ten percent level as a one-tailed test.
