Straw poll: GUI or command langauge in MLwiN

Hi!

Just a bit of a straw poll: I'm new to MLwiN. How many of you use the command language, versus using the GUI (dropdowns and tickboxes)?

Thanks! :)

Re: Typically use MLwiN for recoding, or other stat pkg?

Sorry -- my initial posting actually asked two distinct questions. No responses yet, so let me revise... :) 1) How many of you use MLwiN for your recoding -- and how many do all your data cleaning and manipulating in another stats package, and then just import it to MLwinN just for the specific MLM ...
