Just as an aside, -h sortrows- at the bottom says: "This is a similar
command to Nicholas Cox's sortrows". I think that should be -rowsort-...

Hi again guys!

I wish to say 2 things. The ado file which I posted earlier is much
faster than looping manually in stata.

Also the original sortrows has some checks and balances which I
removed to clarify the main programming goal in my mind plus I only
started doing MATA yesterday.

I want to make one improvement. Sortrows allows me to say

sortrows(var*)

I want to say keysortrows(var*), key(k*)

How can I make this improvement ? Please give me a hint.

Thank you,
Ashim.
