Depends on the kind of log-transformation required. For instance, you can:

. g logvar=log10(var) [for base 10 log-transformations]

and

. g logvar=log(var)
  OR                  [for natural log-transformations]
. g logvar=ln(var)

See -whelp math fucntions- for more.

Whereever you go and whatever you do, just remember this. No matter how
many like you, admire you, love you or adore you, the number of people
turning up to your funeral will be largely determined by local weather
conditions.
