However, I need to constrain the value of one of my coefficients to be
fixed (at, say, -6). The "eclass" will not allow for constrained
estimation. Is there any way of getting around this? Can I access the
system variables (e.g., e(V)) without defining my program as an eclass?
-clogit- does allow for the use of the -constraints- option; is there some reason you can't use that?

You could also manipulate the values in your copies of e(b) and e(V), and then use ereturn repost.
