st: Re: The speed of the MFX command and Stata 9
I would like to hear more about your experience with -mfx-. When you
say that the large model had not finished after 39 hours, are you
talking about Stata 8.0 or Stata 8.2 with all the latest updates? I
recall that the speed of -mfx- was increased significantly after the
initial release of Stata 8.
