Actually my statements: "In -clogit-, there is an intercept for each pair, it but does not appear in the prediction. -logit- has only a singleintercept, which is part of the xb prediction." are irrelevant for the algorithm Laura gave, as any intercept will cancel out. However the estimated coefficients from the two commands will differ, and -logit- will accept some predictors that -clogit- rejects because they are constant within group.
