Apart from this, I am running some Monte Carlo simulations

Thanks for the report. Since this is an issue that other people
are likely to run into as well, let me explain:
* "set echo off" suppresses the echoing of the commands in the
script; that is, you should just see the output from those
* If you don't want to see status messages such as "Replaced
matrix 'E'", then in addition you should do
set messages off
* Finally, if you want a loop to run quietly, without reporting
the number of iterations completed, add the "--quiet" flag to
the loop command, e.g.
loop i=1..10 --quiet
Perhaps there should be one global command to achieve all this,
but that's how things stand at present.
