I thought it would be possible to do PLS in Stata. Although a relative newcomer to Stata, I'm not surprised to hear that it is possible. But to the original point, I thought it might be easier for James to use available software (especially given his comment re: knowledge of statistics). Just my two cents. :-)

I'll take the opposite tact - it is clear that it can be done in
Stata.  Most of the tools (matrix decompositions) exist.  Just do it
