Thank you for your superior googling. So, where is the code? I also googled it, but I can't see the code. Melly's Stata code is for his new decomposition which is not the exactly same as Machado & Mata, although it is said to yield essentially identical results. Many articles explain the procedure to conduct Machodo & Mata with appreciation to contributors who provided them the code. If it is a rule to write my own code, that's fine, I will do that. I just wish I can appreciate someone when (s)he shows me the code like the authors in other papers I googled. btw, "http://lmgtfy.com"; looks cool.
