Re: st: Stata (gllamm) benchmarks for different platforms?
No doubt the stuff about chips and flops is important but if the objective is
making -gllamm- more useable shouldn't the first step be to encourage StataCorp
to incorporate -gllamm- or -gllamm-like code for mixed/hierarchical models
*into the executable* as soon as possible?
