st: nl in which the nonlinear functional form is conditional on x |

Dear All: I have the model as follows: y = F(x; lamda) for x>0 and y= G(x: lamda) for x<0. Both F and G are nonlinear. Do you think we can use _nl_ to estimate this model? Is there a way we can write like this: nl {( y = F(x; lamda) if x>0 ) (y= G(x: lamda) if x<0)} Many thanks!
