That's an interesting claim, although quite unspecific. But if the implication is that those user-written commands use more resources than Small Stata allows, then it's not a criticism of those commands, except secondarily if the required resources are not documented or implied. Otherwise I have no idea what this implies. On behalf of user-programmers everywhere, I invite Constantine to make his report specific. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Constantine Daskalakis It's not as easy as this. Certain user-written commands won't run on Small Stata and unless you want to look carefully at their code there's no way to tell until you actually try them on a Small Stata. I've had the same problem myself. On 4/23/2010 12:02 AM, Richard Williams wrote: > At 09:46 PM 4/22/2010, Airey, David C wrote: >> . >> >> How can I hobble Stata 11 to behave as Small Stata?
