st: Non-Linear Least Squares Programming Question |

Hi, I have a program that I want to use with the NL (non-linear least squares) command in Stata. I just have a simple question with regard to Stata v.9, for my objective function that gets "replaced" in the NL program, is it possible to have the Left Hand side and the ride hand side both be matrices? Typically, I have seen examples (in the stata manual and other people's do files), where the right hand side is simply a single equation. For instance: capture program drop nltest program define nltest version 9.0 if "`1'"== { global S_1 b1 b2 b3 } replace `1'=$b1*X+exp($b2*$b3) end nl test data1 X etc. . . I want to know if Stata v.9 can handle a matrix on both the right hand side and left hand side (can data1 and X be matrices?) in the line above that begins with "replace". I have several equations that I would like to fit with the same parameters. I know Stata v.10 has the NLSUR command, I just want to know if I should wait for this version.
