Could you run it in batch overnight? Or is this something that would take a
week to run? I can't imagine STATA would be much if any faster than SAS
except for the server's speed, so perhaps something like this could be
attempted? How much data are you processing [events/rows/etc.]? What sort
of desktop time are you currently using to run it?
In any event, you might try posting your code and what it's supposed to do;
on the list we often find that it's possible to significantly speed up code
by making a few fairly common modifications. 500 lines isn't much, so I'm
sure some of us would be happy to look at it.
