... but:
Logit and probit, being ML procedures, do allow for -maximize_options-, i.e. allow for -iterate()-, but do not seem to save -e(converged)- ?!
Perhaps -glm- or my -oglm- program would work? I checked and oglm saves e(converged). oglm is slower than logit or probit; I don't know how glm's speed compares.
