Subject   st: Run a do file but see output

I've always used -do filename- for little command files.  Having written
a large file (mainly mata) that gets modified incrementally, I would
like to run it without the commands filling the results screen every
time.  So for the first time ever, I tried -run- but don't get any
output! This is documented [U]16.6.2 "neither the instructions in the
file nor any of the output ... is shown... . *This is not useful here*"!
[my emphasis!]

Adding noisily to the printf commands doesn't help.  Is there a way,
other than turning the .do into .ado, to run commands without showing
each command but displaying command output?
