part of the output to Stata. The main two problems of this wrapper are:

1) your Stata working directory has to be where DEAP.exe is installed
2) the parsing of the Stata -> DEAP syntax involves some typing (i.e.

If anyone wants to give it a try please drop me a line off-list 

As usual comments and suggestions are welcomed.

There is some free, light, easy-to-use and, for the stochastic frontier
better-than-Stata software from CEPA, somewhere about ther . Frontier 4.1 and DEAP 2.1


P.S. I'll NOT receive/read any email but the Digest.
