Re-imagining a Stata/Python combination
At last year’s Stata Conference, I presented some ideas for combining Stata and Python within a single interface. Two methods were presented; in one, Python was used to automate Stata, and in the other, Python was used to send simulated keystrokes to the Stata GUI. The first method has the drawback of only working in Windows, and the second can be slow and subject to character input limits. In this talk I will demonstrate a method for achieving interaction between Stata and Python which does not suffer these drawbacks, and I will present some examples to show how this interaction can be useful.
