That is not easy, and for a good reason: Output only makes sense if you know
what produced it. It is the commands that document exactly what you have
done, and consequently what the output means. If you really want to do it
you can store the .do file that creates your output as an .ado file (say
analysis.ado), -cd- to the directory where this file is stored, start the
log file and type analysis. But again, I advise strongly against it.

Hope this helps,
