Betreff: st: Stata equivalent to Matlab 'waitbar' function?


Does anyone know of a way to produce either a graphical or numeric display 
in the STATA results window, that indicates the progress when running a 
program with a loop function in it (ie. to indicate the proportion of total 
iterations currently complete, when using a command such as -forvalues i = 
1/`iterations'- ...)

I can use -display- to provide a cumulative percentage, but would prefer if 
the printed result could overwrite the last text rather than a ridiculous 
build up of numbers in the results window.

If it helps, this would be something equivalent to the 'waitbar' function 
in Matlab.

This would be extremely helpful.

Many thanks,
