Joseph Coveney (jcoveney@bigplanet.com) wants to insert page breaks
in a SMCL log file:

There is an undocumented SMCL tag in Stata 9 which Joseph can use:
{newpage}

{newpage} will cause a page break to be inserted when a SMCL file
is translated to PostScript or printed through a standard printer
driver.

{newpage} is undocumented because it is a work in progress.  Its
behavior may change slightly in the future.  Also, it may not do
what a user thinks it would do if it is used in the middle of a
SMCL paragraph.  If used in the middle of a paragraph, the page
break may not appear at the exact location of the {newpage} tag.
The page break may be shifted to the beginning or the end of
the paragraph.
