anyone know
how I can get Stata 8 on OS X to startup without the gui?
Christopher Baum <[email protected]> replied:

Indeed, it seems to be difficult to use Stata in the same way I can on
any other *nix platform: if in Terminal I type

./StataSE -b do foo

It does not terminate the app, but wants to put up a dialog stating
that the do-file has completed, and output has been placed in...
Use the -e option.

This makes it very hard to automate the use of Stata on OS X.
Annoyingly, executing Stata from the console does not respond to the
'-h' (help) option. On other *nix, stata invokes the console version,
while xstata invokes the GUI version.
I'll look into it.
