Re: st: Re: into the executable...
With respect to gllamm, both Kit and Ronan have suggested a plug-in solution
rather than incorporating code into the executable. For my part I'd be happy
either way - as long as we get compiled code so that Stata has a mixed models
estimation program that is useably speedy. I might add, in the spirit of
Ronan's last message, that no criticism is implied of the developers of gllamm
it is a remarkable achievement by any standard.
Perhaps the current lively thread centred on hardware and programming options
for gllamm will encourage StataCorp &/or the gllamm developers to raise its
priority a notch or two on their to-do list. There is obviously a receptive
audience out here in Stata-land for that.
