STOP: Stata module to interrupt dofiles intelligently (closes logfiles and optionally sends a message to your smartphone)
Statistical Software Components from Boston College Department of Economics
stop interrupts dofiles, closes any running logfiles and optionally sends a message to your smartphone (see sendtoslack). This is particularly useful when you are running the same dofile in multiple instances (potentially on different machines). In those situations, you often get errors that the logfile cannot be accessed (because it is still open in the other instance). Moreover, if your dofiles take ages to run, it is convenient to get message on your smartphone when they’re done.
