st: -outreg-, factor variables and LaTeX special characters

Subject   st: -outreg-, factor variables and LaTeX special characters

I am using -outreg- (version 4.29) to export regression results to
latex. -outreg- does not handle LaTeX special characters
automatically. The issue shows up when using factor variables, because
# appears frequently.

For example, if I export a regression table, make a proper tex
document out of it using the user written command -maketex- and try to
compile it using texify, it will fail to compile because of the #
character in the factor variable.

sysuse auto, clear
reg price c.mpg##c.turn
outreg using test.tex, tex replace
maketex using test.tex
!texify -p -c -b --run-viewer test.tex

Is there a workaround to this using -outreg- ? I could try -estout-,
-outreg2- (which I think has the same issue) etc ..., but I am just
used to -outreg-

Thank you,
