thanks for your insight.
per my limited knowledge of statistical knowledge, there are multiple
implementation of lasso and lar, including the ones you mentioned
applicable to logit model. however, the lasso and lar implemented in
glmselect procedure is for "general linear model" but not "generalized
linear model". therefore, glmselect procedure won't help any in the
logit model PERIOD.
