st: question about -lfit- and -estat gof-

Subject   st: question about -lfit- and -estat gof-

The old -lfit- command had an option where external coefficients could be evaluated against a current dataset.  [e.g., -lroc- has the option beta(matname)]

The approach was described in STB-28: sbe12.

The code went something like this:

   mat b = (external beta coefficients)
   mat colnames b = <varnames>

   lfit <depvar>, group(10) beta(b) table

The new -estat gof- command doesn't appear to accommodate this option.  While -lfit- still works, it is "out-of-date".  I would hate for it to be "decommissioned" and loose this option.  Is there a corresponding approach in Stata 11?

Thanks.
