Re Michael`s -log- command: This will only work for Stata users who do not
customarily keep a log of everything they do, started by the -profile.do-.
For the others, you have to add the -name()- option to the -log- command to
make this work...

I'm a little surprised by some of the more complex answers given on  
this thread -- perhaps I am misunderstanding what looks to be a fairly  
simple question.

Babak:

Martin's suggestion to use -quietly- seems to me to be one half of the  
solution you seek.  The other half is its counterpart, -noisily-:

// Begin example

quietly {
     log using quiet_noise.log, text replace
     sysuse auto
     noisily: regress price mpg foreign
     log close
}

// End example

Note that only the results of the -regress- command are displayed, and  
not the call to the -regress- command itself.  Is that something like  
what you are looking for?

Note also that if you look at the file "quiet_noise.log" with a plain  
text editor, you'll see that it only contains the results of the  
commands you precede with -noisily:- .  This log file might be more  
useful for you than (say) copying and pasting from the Results window,  
should you have some post-processing of the output in mind.  Using - 
estout- or a similar command is arguably an even better way to control  
what you output and how it looks, especially for inclusion in  
professional documents.

Hope this helps,
Mike
