Dear all, 

I am interested in carrying out a CART-type analysis
to find the best combination of questions for the diagnosis of 
Obstetric cholestasis.

A web search in Stata revealed one relevant set of files
(plus several that referred to the name Carter or similar).
Wim van Putten's -cart- package, however,  performs a CART 
analysis for failure time data.

Does anyone know of a CART-type package for Stata.
Alternatively, is it possible to use Wim van Putten's method 
if I give every observation a failure/censuring time of 1?

Many thanks.
