The help for -smcl- gives a solution: 

{stata args[:text]}                                                    (syntaxes 3 & 4)  
        {stata} displays text as a link that will execute the Stata command args in the
        Results window.  Stata will first ask before executing the command that is
        displayed in a web browser.  If args (the Stata command) contains a colon, remember
        to enclose the command in quotes.
