It seems what you are trying to do is terribly inefficient, and 
I would not do it this way, but -logout- will chop up lines into 
separate variables provided it is first placed into an external file.
I was not aware of -split- at the time but it does a similar thing.
It looks like the current version is not unwrapping texts correctly, 
so you should use a really small font in the results window (right-click, 
and choose the font size of 1).
sysuse auto, clear
set logtype text
levelsof make, local(lev)
cap log close
log using mylog.txt, replace
foreach l of local lev {
 di `"`l' "' _c
log close
logout, use(mylog.txt) clear
keep if t2~=""
