I've seen this in loops that that contain an iterative
estimation procedure (eg, logit). I have to Break twice
quickly - once to break the estimation, then again to
break out of the -do- file before the next estimation

Dear Stata Users,

I have a Stata do file that is something like the following:

estimation 1
estimation 2
estimation 200

Now, I start this do file, and for some reason I want to break the
execution. When I hit the Break button on Stata, it only stops the
current estimation, and moves to the next one. When I hit the Break
button again, it does the same thing, meaning that I have to hit the
Break button 200 times to stop the execution.

Hitting the x on the top right corner is not helpful either. Stata
asks "exit stata, are you sure?" I say "yes", but above scenario is
repetated. Stata stops only the current estimation and moves on to the
next one.

Is there another way to stop the whole thing? Thanks in advance for any help.
