You could try it and see. Or look at the code to see what it does. In fact, this won't work. -predlog- is self-contained and carries out a regression and then does the necessary extra calculations. Only by rewriting the program could you extend it to other methods. I found this in my files. Without absolutely no promises about its scope, it may nevertheless show by example that you don't much need an extra program, as only a few lines are required after something like a regression. *!

I understand that - predlog - is useful for OLS regression. What if you are using models like treatreg or heckman or other two-part models? Would - predlog - still work?
