Hi,

I understand the program that Robert wants. But Martin's solution can be 
implemented in a do-file framework as the following example.

program clean
    log using output, smcl replace
    sysuse auto
    valid reg price mpg
    valid reg price mp3
    log close
end

program valid
    capture `0'
    if !_rc `0'
end

The program clean has all your commands and put the results in a log file. I 
added Martin's program at the bottom of the file, in other words the do-file 
contains both programs (clean and valid). Then you have to type (the 
usual) -do clean- to load both programs and -clean- to run your routine.

The output looks "clean" for me. Is this useful for you Robert?
Rodrigo.

Martin,
  Your program seems to check for errors while your running the program.
 But it leaves all of the trace material in the log.  I'm looking for a
program that
passes through the smcl file, finds the errors, makes a record of what line
they are on, and then on a second pass erases the command generating the
error
and the error, to clean up the smcl file preparatory for a double check
of the syntax.
  If you know of such a program, it would be helpful to
get ahold of it.
   - Regards,
       Bob
