Thanks to Kit Baum, a new version of the -dologx- package is now available for download from SSC. In Stata, use the -ssc- command to do this, or the -adoupdate- command if you already have an old version.

The -dologx- command is described as below on my website. The new version has been updated to Stata Version 11, complete with a Stata Version 11 online help file with references to the .pdf manuals. Stata 11 developers can therefore certify that a program works under Stata 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and/or 11. Stata developers using Stata 8, 9 or 10 can still download the appropriate version of -dologx- from my website by typing, in Stata,

net from

and selecting the version required.

Best wishes

      dologx: Multiple versions of dolog for executing certification scripts

      dologx (like dolog) causes Stata to execute the commands stored in a do-file
      named as if they were entered from the keyboard, and echos the
      commands as it executes them, creating a log file filename.log. The dologx
      package contains multiple versions of dolog, written in multiple Stata
      versions, intended for use when running certification scripts. Usually, a
      do-file should contain a version statement at or near the top, so it will
      still run in the Stata version in which it was written, even if the user runs
      it under a later version of Stata. Certification scripts are an exception to
      this rule, because they are run under multiple Stata versions, to certify
      that the package being tested works under all of these versions. A
      certification script therefore should not contain a version statement at the
      top. The version of Stata under which it run will therefore be the version in
      force in the program that calls it, even if that program is dolog. The
      standard version of dolog should therefore not be used to run a certification
      script, and the user should use the dologx package instead, using dolog6 to
      run it under Stata 6, dolog7 to run it under Stata 7, and so on.
