st: RE: Re: Calling SAS and R code from Stata
(Babak just asked the same question on Allstat.
Here is my reply repeated. I've ignored
the attachment Babak sent as a matter of principle.)
You cannot run SAS or R code from within Stata.
Incidentally, I was not aware that you could
run R or Stata code from within SAS, or
SAS or Stata code from within R. That is,
high-level languages can often run stuff
in lower-level languages, but at least
in statistical software high-level languages
cannot in general run each other, to the
best of my knowledge. (The compatibility
of S-Plus and R is a different story.)
