st: Memory & speed: Stata 7 + Mac OS X
Memory: Setting the memory in Stata 7 on a Mac OS X box requires the user to
set the memory in the General Preferences pull-down menu and then to quit &
relaunch Stata. Any chance this has been fixed in Stata 8? (That would be
enough to get me to upgrade!)
Speed: I have found that using a 200 MB dataset is really ugly. On a G4
(again, Stata 7 & OS X), it takes nearly a minute just to tabulate a
variable. I don't think this is a problem w/ my computer since I have tried
it on both a G3 and G4 w/ maxed out RAM. I do not have this speed problem on
my PC. Has anyone experienced this or can anyone attest to the elimination
of this problem on Stata 8? Since Stata 7 was originally written for OS 9
and then an OS X fix was released, I am wondering if this could be the root
of the problem.
Thanks for any input!
