I would like to estimate a constrained OLS in which the estimated parameters
should be positive and also add up to one. I tried to define two constraints
and estimate the model using cnsreg. Unfortunately it seems that the
constraint command doesn't accept inequality constraints.  Any idea how can
I solve this problem?
