[P] mlopts -- Parsing tool for ml commands


mlopts mlopts [rest] [, options ]


mlopts is a parsing tool that was written to assist in syntax checking and parsing of estimation commands that use ml. The options specified in options will be separated into groups and returned in local macros specified by the caller. The names of the local macros are identified by mlopts and rest.

mlopts is required and will contain those options that the ml command recognizes as maximize options. Options returned in mlopts are

trace gradient hessian showstep technique(algorithm_specs) vce(oim|opg|robust) iterate(#) tolerance(#) ltolerance(#) nrtolerance(#) qtolerance(#) nonrtolerance showtolerance difficult constraints(clist|matname) collinear nocnsnotes

For a description of the above options (except constraints()), see [R] maximize. For a description of constraints, see [R] cnsreg and [R] reg3.

rest is optional and, if specified, will contain all other options that were not returned in mlopts. If rest is not specified, then any extra options will cause an error.
