Dear statalisters

I'm doing Cox models and want to compare a model 'A' with a model 'B'
with regards to Harrell's C statistics within the same dataset and
with the use of a statistical test. As I'm calculating C statistics in
the same dataset in which the Cox models were fitted, I will have an
over-optimistic estimate of C. I want to take this overoptimism into
account by some kind of cross-validation. As my dataset is very large,
I can't use the rather slow 'estat concordance' command, but has to
use the 'somersd' command or something as fast at this command. Do
someone have a script for such a procedure?

Thanks in advance,
