I just wanted to remind users about Ben Jann's program "texdoc" as one solution for combining Stata results and graphs with documentation, in a "weaving" fashion, similar to R and Sweave. It works well with relatively simple documents one might produce for a course.
In Ben's program, you basically type in your .do file:
texdoc init myfile, replace
and then you enclose blocks of LaTeX in your .do file between
...stuff like LaTeX preamble, graphics, body text, etc.
and enclose blocks of Stata commands with
texdoc stlog close
and end with
With that structure in your .do file, you type,
texdoc myfile.do, replace
to create all the .tex files and include files. Then you LaTeX the .tex file to produce a very pretty PDF.
You also have to download sjlatex and if on a mac, install sjlatex files here:
and also if you are on a mac, a very easy MacTeX installation is available.
