I have used it quite a lot when estimating models using -ml- where an
estimation may fail for a number of reasons (e.g. non-concavities, or
other things, not always predictable in advance). Each estimation takes
a long time to run. It is convenient to stack the estimations up in one
do file and leave them to run overnight (say), using -, nostop-.
