This question probably arises as a understandable puzzle about someone's
English usage, possibly mine! 

Some approach may be described as "brute force", but that means only
that the technique will work, but is otherwise not admirable or
desirable. 

There isn't a converse recipe for "brute force". 

Some idea of context would be helpful.

Could anybody explain how to do "brute force" in Stata or refer to any
page
which explains about it? Thanks.
