P.S. "locale" is just a word convenient for discussing this issue. Don't
expect to find it used by other Stata authors, let alone in StataCorp
No, a run of a .do-file is in Stata defined as a session, so when the
.do-file is done the session ended and the local macro ceased to exist.
I don't quite see the point where I go wrong. I would like to use
local macros in a do-file for regressions (e.g. -local main "female
income age age2"-, then -reg `main'-). However, these local macros
seem to be available only during the execution of the do-file.
Whenever I want to refer to these macros via the console it doesn't
work anymore. -macro list- then shows me that the local macros are not
present anymore. However, if I manually enter the local macro in the
console it stays there and can be referred to later (even after -
I know I could work with global macros but I would prefer to have
something like session macros so that I could also use them via
console but which would then get deleted when clearing the memory
(opposite to global macros which would continue to work).
