```It is unnecessary to fire up heavy plant here. Assuming time order the
maximum so far, a.k.a. a record, is just

gen roll_max = inv[1]
replace roll_max = max(inv, roll_max[_n-1] in 2/L

and even for panels you just need to do that under the aegis of -by:-.

There is an -egen- function -record()- in -egenmore- from SSC.
