st: How to deal with commands that are too long for e(cmdline) when writting postestimation commands? |

Dear Statalisters, I am working on an ado that calculates influence statistics for higher-level clusters after hierarchical mixed models. However, my question is pretty much independent of my ado. My postestimation command needs to extract a list of all independent variables of the model and also some other elements from the command (options, random effects specifications etc.). Everything works fine and I don't have a problem with the syntax. My problem is simply that I don't know how to deal with command lines that exceed 244 characters. How do you deal with command lines that cannot be stored in e(cmdline)? Is there a way to get all the variables, options, etc. even if the command exceeds 244 characters? Thanks, Alex * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
