For the size of the review window bufffer, the answer is yes - at least in Stata 9.
- set scrollbufsize # -
The default size is 32,000, and you can increase this up to a maximum of 500,000.
I don't remember if this feature was also available in Stata 8.

dear listers,

stata 8.2,

i made mistake, forgotten to -cmdlog-. tried to save content review windows but some had gone for good. saving grace was i logged the session so all was not lost. as a consequence, i have one question and one request for help.

1. is there a way to increase review window buffer size? i checked Stata help, [U] 18 and [R] review but no suggestion over there. i assume either it cannot be done or otherwise undocumented. i know this is (increasing buffer size) no defense for forgetfulness but something's better than nothing.

2. all along i have issued log and cmdlog, not thinking that these could perhaps be wrapped in an ado say sessrec.ADO short for 'session record'. and all i have to do is to type:

.sessrec use filename (including location path)

and it would automatically starts both log and cmdlog.

would appreciate advice and help.

regards,
bw
