Hello All

Thanks to Kit Baum, there is now a new version of the -dolog- package available for download from SSC. This can be done using the -ssc- command.

The -dolog- package is described as below on my website. The new version is in Stata 9. Therefore, if Stata 9 users run do-files using -dolog- without a -version- command, then the new -dolog- will protect them from their own stupidity by running the do-files under version 9. The old Stata 8, 7 and 6 versions can still be downloaded from my website by typing
net from
and then selecting the preferred Stata version and downloading the preferred -dolog- version.

Best wishes


package dolog from

dolog: Execute commands from a file, creating a log file

dolog (like do) causes Stata to execute the commands stored in filename
just as if they were entered from the keyboard, and echos the commands as it
executes them, creating a log file filename.log. If filename is specified
without an extension, is assumed. If filename is specified with
an extension, then the log file will have .log as an additional extension
(so dolog will not overwrite the original do-file). Arguments are allowed
(as with do), but the nostop option is not available.
