All Stata-listers:

mfx has some embedded utility programs taking derivatives, but seems cannot be used in a stand-alone fashion. What I am trying to do is to be able to estimate model based on some prior functional form and to get score function or the gradient/and Hessian of that functional form with respect to the parameter estimate. Or basically, d(f(X, B)/dB and d(d(f(X,B))/(dBdB')and use estimates to replace B. I don't want to use testnl as it reestimate the model. Any ado files that's available or any good algorithsm you would suggest? Really appreciate.
