It's not as easy as this. Certain user-written commands won't run on Small Stata and unless you want to look carefully at their code there's no way to tell until you actually try them on a Small Stata. I've had the same problem myself.

How can I hobble Stata 11 to behave as Small Stata? I wanted to know
if Small Stata will run all exercises for a class.

Here are the limits for small Stata:

"Small Stata is limited to analyzing datasets with a maximum of 99
variables and 1,200 observations. Small Stata can have at most 99
right-hand-side variables in a model."

Also, if you type -help limits- in Stata you will see what the other
limits are. My guess is that most of these won't affect you unless you
are doing something weird like giving them programs with super-long macros.
