If you are coding this as -d1- or -d2- method, you have to code the
derivatives, anyway. If you are using -lf-, then there should be some
technical temporary variables created by Stata, but you should not
mess with them (I tried for some of my projects, and it never worked
as intended).

You might want to switch to Mata and -optimize- where a lot of things
come more naturally in terms of matrix computations.
