I have a do file which contains many commands such as -generate-,

I would like to run this file, and keep a log of just the output and
not the commands. How can this be done?


This comes up periodically, so you might want to check the archives for any
better suggestions (there might even be an FAQ by now), but I use
a simple -program- wrapper.

. program define logem
 1. version 9.2
 2. capture log close
 3. quietly log using log.prn, text
 4. sysuse auto
 5. regress price weight
 6. display in smcl _newline(2)
 7. nl (price = {constant} + {weight} * weight)
 8. display
 9. quietly log close
10. end

. logem
[output snipped--it contains no commands]

. viewsource log.prn
