st: -set memory- in Stata 11 |

Fellow Statalisters (especially StataCorp) Thanks to all at StataCorp for the new Stata 11, which I am currently testing (in its IC flavor) on my Windows XP system, and which seems to be working as advertized so far. One immediate query (sorry for being a pest). Is there any special reason why, in Stata 11, we can no longer reset the memory using -set memory- when there is a set of estimation results (or even a matrix) in the memory, even under version control with the command -version 10.1-? (I have included a demonstration of this feature of Stata 11 under version control below my signature.) I ask because we were always allowed to do this in Stata 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10, and I have therefore always habitually started most of my do-files with three commands, which were a -version- command, a -clear- command, and a -set memory- command. As in: version 10.1; clear; set memory 1m; These do-files worked under their respective Stata versions, or under higher versions. However, if I re-run a Stata 10.1 do-file beginning with these 3 commands under Stata 11, and a set of estimation results (or a matrix) already exists in the memory, then the first 2 commands execute OK, but the third command aborts with the error message no; Stata matrices have not been cleared (type -clear matrix- to clear Stata matrices) I am aware that, if I amend the second of the above 3 commands so that they read version 10.1; clear all; set memory 1m; then the matrices will be cleared as well, and the do-file will therefore run under either Stata 10.1 or Stata 11. However, I was wondering if there is a quick fix to this minor teething problem which does not require me to edit most of my existing currently active do-files one by one. I cannot immediately find such a fix in the on-line help for -clear- or -memory-, or in the new .pdf manuals (which are a much appreciated improvement - thanks to all at StataCorp).
