st: -ml- options -nr-, -brrr-??
The 16april2003 ado file update includes, in part, a statement:
"8. ml did not correctly compute the tolerance for the
nrtolerance() option when the nr or bhhh options
were also specified. ... "
However the -nr- and -bhhh- options are undocumented in the ref manuals
or on-line help for -ml.
There was a helpful but brief mention of the options in a Statalist
message on 03 Jan 2002 from Vince Wiggins and Weihua Guan (StataCorp),
stating in part that "The DFP, BFGS, and BHHH can be used by -ml-
programmers, but they are not currently documented, though they may be
in the future."
Can they be documented please?
