If you get the program -ivreg2- (just say -findit ivreg2- from within
Stata and follow the links to install, or -net install ivreg2.pkg- to
install immediately), you can do this in one line using the -orthog()-

In the -ivreg2- help file, see the text section on the C-test/orthog and
the examples at the bottom, esp. the example showing the equivalence of
the Durbin-Wu-Hausman (DWH) endogeneity test and the C-test, and the
example above it labelled "Test the exogeneity of 1 regressor".

Hope this helps.
