I am reading an ado file written in Stata V5, there is a few keywords I couldn't really uderstand, i.e., _crceprs, could anyone tell where should I look for a list of these keyword or commands?
I am also having trouble with

local if "opt",

is this this going to contradict the "if" used in Stata?

_crceprs is an ado file. Type
which _crceprs
to find it. You can then inspect it.

From my own inspection, all I can say is that is handles equations.

With some searching, I find it is a "subroutine" to an other ado -- ml_5, which is the version-5 edition of ml (maximum likelihood estimation). (See ml.ado and ml_5.ado.)

It is odd that some other do file made use of it.

local if "opt",
is not going to interfere with the Stata -if- command or -if- qualifier. But if it is within a program that has an -if- qualifier in its syntax, then this might cause trouble.
