st: RE: RE: Plots: save, log, ...
Sorry, but you have lost me.
Unless what you want is this:
one big file that in some way keeps all
the graph files in a session, just as a .log
file can store all the results displayed in a session.
There is no such thing. (You can use your operating
system or a text editor or a scripting language
to produce such a file by concatenation, but it
won't help, as you will just have to unpack it
all again before Stata can make sense of it.)
A log file can include anything.
The same does not apply to a graph file.
A graph file at root contains Stata code to draw one graph.
That graph can be a composite, but that's it.
