Thanks to Kit Baum, an update to the -estwrite- package is available
from the SSC archive.

-estwrite- can be used to store results from model estimation in a
file on disk. -estread- reimports the saved estimation sets.

-estwrite- has been update to use Stata 10 technology provided by the
-estimates save- command. The advantages of -estwrite- over -estimates
save- are:

(1) Multiple sets may be stored in one file.

(2) The e(sample) (estimation sample) may be stored and recovered.

(3) e()-returns that have a name starting with an underscore (e.g.
e(_abc)) are preserved.

(4) -estwrite- can also be used in Stata 8 and Stata 9. In Stata 9,
-estwrite- uses its own Mata-based algorithm to store the estimation
sets (using the same file format as with the default method). In Stata
8, the estimates are stored in a Stata dataset using Michael Blasnik's
-estsave- command, which must be installed on the system in this case
(see -ssc describe estsave-).

To install the update, type

 . ssc install estwrite, replace

or use the -adoupdate- command.

To import results that have been saved using a previous version of
-estwrite-, type

 . estread <filename>, estsave
