Re: st: log only results of r-class commands |

I am not sure that I understand exactly where the difficulty is, but if any command places a matrix into an r()-result, it is possible to output it to, say, Excel with -xml_tab-. If you want to mechanically dump all the results of r-class commands, then here is how: 1. create a program Protocol.ado in your ado directory program define Protocol return clear // need this in case anything is not an r-class command quietly `0' di "Saved Results:" di `"`:r(matrices)'"' di `"`:r(scalars)'"' di `"`:r(macros)'"' di `"`:r(functions)'"' local matrixlist `"`:r(matrices)'"' // Here do whatever you want with the contents, e.g. list the matrices foreach m of local matrixlist { matrix list r(`m') } end 2. Open a log file 3. instead of writing "sum x" write "Protocol sum x" everywhere in your program 4. Close the log file Demo: sysuse auto log using C:\MyLogFile.txt, text Protocol tabstat price length weight, save log close Hope this is what you were looking for.
