FRAPPLY: Stata module to nondestructively apply command(s) to a frame

Statistical Software Components from Boston College Department of Economics

Abstract: frapply applies a command or a series of commands to the dataset in the specified (or current) frame and optionally puts the result into another frame. Commands that are otherwise destructive (such as drop, keep, collapse, contract etc.) can be run serially while preserving the dataset. This can be particularly useful in interactive and experimental settings where we want to quickly and iteratively summarize and/or transform the data without changing it. frapply can also be a convenient drop-in replacement for the frames prefix and a substitute for frames commands such as frame copy and frame put. It can do everything those commands can do in a more flexible fashion.
