I may be wrong, as I am certainly no expert in Mata, but can structures
not just be dropped (as any other objects) using -mata drop-, e.g.

mata drop mystruct()

Subject: st: Mata: dropping structures from memory

Hi everyone,

I have a recursive problem involving linked list of structures in Mata,
but after some number of chains (number is not fixed, that's why I
decided to use list instead of a matrix) I don't need an earlier members
of the list and they can be dropped to free some memory. If I don't drop
them, my list is getting too long and even makes Stata to crash.

I was wondering if there was some way of clearing structures like other
objects in Stata.

Thanks in advance,
Zurab
