Hi all,

I am a newbie to STATA and I have a question regarding "clear" and "drop _all". 

According to STATA, these two are supposed to be the same. However, if I use "clear", even my matrices are deleted from the memory, as opposed to "drop _all", which just deletes the variables but maintains matrices in the memory. Can anyone tell me more about the differences between these two commands?

Thank you very much!
