Thanks for your response - it will be a great feature and I look forward to
the new documentation.  I'd like to download the merror package, but
unfortunately my firewall blocks all of my net commands from inside Stata.
Does anyone know how I can obtain this package manually?

Thanks,
Chris

The brochure is just the slightest bit ahead of development and
documentation.

As Kit Baum <baum@bc.edu> noted, DLLs can be called from Stata and in fact
a
suite of commands to fit models to data with measurement error has been
implemented using DLLs, see http://www.stata.com/merror.  These commands
were
presented in a full-day seminar at the Stata User Group Meeting in Boston,
on
March 19th.

As we documented DLLs, it became clear that we wanted to make some final
changes to make using DLLs easier.  These changes were discussed at the
London
Stata User Group meeting on May 19th.  The changes are almost complete and
we
expect to have a web page documenting how to use DLLs with Stata up by the
first week in July.
