st: RE: bootstrapping over multiple commands
I think the answer is Yes and No and both
The syntax for -bootstrap- makes it clear
that it is a framework for repeatedly
running a single command.
However, there is nothing to stop
you putting a sequence of commands in
a single program. To Stata that is then
just another command. The key is that the
results must be visible to -bootstrap-.
(At a guess, this would work with
a do file too, with the same caveat.)
