It may not be elegant, but I use global macros in my gologit2 and oglm programs, and then drop them at the end of the program. I probably do all sorts of things that would get me fired if I programmed for Stata, but since I don't, I figure I can get by with it. :) Sometimes programs use s-class subroutines to communicate, but for whatever reason I could never get that to work with my LL functions.
