A counter is implemented like this:  

1. Initialisation before code that loops 

	local count = 0 

2. Incrementation within code that loops 

	local count = `count' + 1 

OR 

	local ++count 

3. Display when you want it -- _either_ within the loop _or_ after it, depending on what 
you want. 

	di `count' 

OR 

	di "optional text " `count'

could you please explain me how to put a counter? If it is not too
complicated of course.
