|Subject||st: Saving estimate parms|
|Date||Tue, 28 Jun 2005 11:57:23 -0400|
I am running large models and need the capability of saving model estimate parms to a hard disk file and retrieving them. All the Stata Procs that I can find including -estimates- only deal with session storage and disappear when the program is closed.
I saw in help _estimates the following:
" _estimates hold moves, or copies if the copy option is specified, all information
associated with the last estimation command into holdname. If holdname is a temporary
name, it will automatically be deleted when you exit from the current program."
This would imply to me that if holdname were not a temp then one might save parms permanently but there are only session references in the code examples.
Can anyone give me a little code to save and retrieve permanent model parms?
