You could use

set trace on
set tracedepth 1

This will produce screen output for intermediate commands. Increasing the tracedepth will show you more of Stata's calculations but will also increase processing time since the program has to send output to the screen.

As an alternative, if you're running a loop, you can put this line inside the loop

nois _dots `i' 0

where `i' is the local you're running the loop over. This will show a dot in the screen every time the loop is completed.

Hi, I am running a huge command wiht more than 1'000'000 operations to do by STATA, and I wa just wondering how I could assure myself that it is really computing some results and I am not waiting for Godot in front of my computer ....?

Thanks,


Laura
