Is there any way to either a) stop Stata from inserting the ">"
character at the beginning of lines wrapped from the previous line, or
else b) copy text from the viewer without those characters, and as one
For example, I have a program that runs a bunch of regressions that
differ slightly in the command line, and a few of them are having
problems. I use -di `"`e(cmdline)'"'- to output the command line that
generates each regression after the reg is run, so I can go back and see
precisely which regression is causing problems, and then I can
investigate further. I would like to be able to copy the command line
(from the viewer or from a log) and paste it into an interactive session
of Stata (v. 11), and then play around with it there. But it's annoying
to have to go through and delete all the hard line breaks that Stata put
in when I originally displayed the long string, in addition to the ">".
Also, is it possible to tell Stata to wrap by word, so it doesn't cut
varnames in half?
