st: log file recording within loops

Dear all,

a question on log-files. Stata does not log any commands that are inside loops (it only logs the results/output). Since loops are usually all over in my do-files I end up having a long list of uninformative notices in my log-files.

I know that most people add comments (e.g. "di ....") in their do- files in order to keep track at which part of the loop their log-file is recording. I do not like this solution since it means a lot of additional typing and a potential source of typos. Is there any other solution, e.g. some sort of "noisily" command that forces Stata to log commands within loops?

Many thanks for any answers,
