Subject   st: estimating parameters of Weibull distribution

Greetings Statalisters-
I need to estimate both parameters from the Weibull 
distribution (beta & theta) using the maximum likelihood 
estimation method.  I have referenced the reference manual and 
it assumes that I am using a specific data set with a Weibull 
distribution but I need the estimates using the general Weibull 
pdf.  I also want to estimate the variance-covariance matrix of 
the MLEs.  Any suggestions (aside from computing it by hand)?

Kindest regards, 
Clint
