> I'm trying to write a .do file that "validates" the version of Stata on my
> computer. Basically I'm using the do files that Stata provides which
> assesses it's accuracy on NIST datasets for which certified results are
> available (http://www.stata.com/support/cert/nist/
> <http://www.stata.com/support/cert/nist/> ). I have a master do file which
> first opens a log file before calling these do files in sequence.
> 
> I would also like this master do file to have commands that insert into
> the same log file, the current date, current Stata version, current
> Windows operating system used, and unique computer ID (I think I can use
> the IP address for this). With these commands I can prove the tests apply
> to my current complete settings. I do not know any commands in Stata that
> show the current Windows operating system or the unique computer ID such
> that the results can be easily saved in a log file. Can anyone please
> help?
> 
> I know I can use the SHELL command to access DOS commands that display
> this information - ver and ipconfig, but I can't figure out how to
> incorporate the results into the log file.
