Laura Platchkov <LMP881@bham.ac.uk>: If you are looping, you can throw out an example every once in a while to see what is being done, and where you are in the loop. For example, here is a set of 800 imaginary farms, and a loop that finds the two states at the nearest state boundary, where every 150 obs a graph is drawn to indicate progress is being made, and we start with a graph for the first obs so we get some immediate feedback: clear all range pid 1 800 800 set seed 123 g farm_Y=32+uniform()*10 g farm_X=-120+uniform()*40 compress save exfarms use exfarms, clear local nf=_N g double mindist=. g stateID1=. g stateID2=. merge using http://pped.org/stata/usa.dta local R=6367.44 qui forv i=1/`nf' { local y1=farm_Y[`i'] local x1=farm_X[`i'] local y2 _Y local x2 _X g double L=(`x2'-`x1')*_pi/180 replace L=(`x2'-`x1'-360)*_pi/180 if L<. & L>_pi replace L=(`x2'-`x1'+360)*_pi/180 if L<-_pi local t1 acos(sin(`y2'*_pi/180)*sin(`y1'*_pi/180) g double d=`t1'+cos(`y2'*_pi/180)*cos(`y1'*_pi/180)*cos(L))*`R' su d, meanonly replace mindist=r(min) in `i' su _ID if d==r(min), meanonly loc i1=r(min) loc i2=r(max) if `i1'==`i2' { su d if _ID!=`i1', meanonly su _ID if d==r(min) & _ID!=`i1', meanonly loc i2=r(min) } replace stateID1=`i1' in `i' replace stateID2=`i2' in `i' loc s `"sc _Y _X if inlist(_ID,`i1',`i2'),mc(gs12)"' loc s `"`s'||scatteri `y1' `x1',msiz(large) name(ex`i')"' if mod(`i',150)==1 `s' drop L d } drop if _m==2 drop _m _ID _X _Y On Sat, Sep 12, 2009 at 1:53 PM, Laura Platchkov <LMP881@bham.ac.uk> wrote: > 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 ....? * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
