[Another Nick]

I'm not following this closely, but you seem to be expecting -outreg2-
(Roy Wada, SSC) and -eststo- (Ben Jann, SSC, SJ) to work with each
other.

Where is it documented that this should work? They are written by
different people and (more importantly) I don't think either author
wrote so that the programs are mutually compatible.
