Ivica,

The -syntax- statement of a function evaluator program must accept 'if'
conditions, even if you don't specify an 'if' condition in your call to
-nlsur-.  Hence, the line

     syntax varlist(min=8 max=8), at(name)

must read

     syntax varlist(min=8 max=8) if, at(name)

Also, this line:

> 				replace `lnpindex' = `lnpindex' +
> 0.5*`g`i'`j''*`ln`i''*`ln`j''

should refer to `lnp`i'' and `lnp`j'', not `ln`i'' and `ln`j''.

To get the maximum-likelihood estimates, you'll need to include the
option 'ifgnls' in your -nlsur- command.
