Why even bother to use -_request-? You could simply pass this as an argument
to the -do- command, as in [U], section 16.4.

Betreff: st: display _request(macname)


I am modifying a .do file graciously sent by Tirthankar so that the .do file

requests the alpha value to be applied for a specific analysis.  I would
like to run the file and then enter an alpha value at will using the command

on the console.

I am using the display _request command.  Execution of the command stops the

.do file, as it should, awaiting the entered value for alpha.  After I enter

the alpha value, the .do file runs to completion perfectly except it always
uses an alpha value which I had previously entered.  If I start anew with a
fresh STATA session, running the .do file, even after entering a value at
the prompt, results in the error message "alpha not found".

Obviously, the value I am entering on the console is not being preserved by

Any help?
