st: Re: Re: Can a non-programmer permanently save the results of estimation?
I'll send estsave separately. You may want to check out -mstore- which was
posted on SSC back in 2001. -mstore- saves matrices with a dataset using
characteristics. Essentially, each row of the matrix is stored as a single
characteristic. Because characteristics are a text format, I use di %18.0g
as the format of each number to include all of the digits feasible. Given
the limit of 67,784 characters, it can large matrices. Other
characteristics are used to to hold row and column names.
