I was told by a professor that Stata 9 has the ability to iterate out a
series of F-tests automatically, and tell you which form of your model
is the best.

For example, you had a model with seven independent variables, and after
manually computing all these F-tests, you discover that one combination
of 5 of those variables is the best.

The command I referring to supposedly has Stata 9 determine which is the
optimal model, with Stata telling you which independent variables to
pick for the optimal condition.

I've searched what's new in Stata 9 on the Stata Homepage, and I've
searched the help documentation thoroughly, but I can find no mention of
such a command.

Is anyone aware of such a command ?

Many thanks,
