Kit, any particular reason you did this Mata way as opposed to ado-way?


and illustrated how it could have all been done with ado-file code. Quite so. There is not likely to be a speed improvement from Mata in this instance as the I/O load of this routine is probably 99.999% of CPU cycles used. But I just find doing it with Mata cleaner and more modular, as well as more reusable. If you want to look at some elegant file-handling Mata code, viewsource adoupdate.ado.
