Partha,



Is there anyway you could send in a log file or a do-file of the commands you are using into Stata technical support? I would like to see if I can track down your problem on one of our Sun machines. The email address is tech-support@stata.com.

Thanks to Kit for both suggestions -tmpdir-, which I've now installed, and the Stata FAQ, which I should have found. I've managed to change the tmpdir from /tmp to something in my user, for which the limit is only the physical hard disk space, but I'm not sure I've solved the problem. I still get the same error message - "3900 unable to allocate real <tmp>[287115,120]". I wonder if mentioning that the "problem" is almost certainly due to a Mata matrix (287115X120) is worth anything.

I referenced r(tmpdir) in my last message. That was created by  running
Dan Blanchette's tmpdir command (ssc install tmpdir). It is  not defined
otherwise.

The FAQ at http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/data/statatmp.html
suggests use of "STATATMP" as the environment variable, which is then
not platform-specific.
