Dear All

Thanks to Kit Baum, there is now a new package -qrowname- downloadable from SSC. It contains 2 programs, -qrowname- and -qcolname-, which extract matrix row names and column names, respectively, into lists of double-quoted names returned in the r() results. The programs therefore do the same as the extended macro functions -roweq-, -coleq-, -rownames-, -colnames-, -rowfullnames- and -colfullnames-, except that the returned name lists contain double-quoted names instead of unquoted names. This is useful if the names contain spaces and/or single quotes, which often happens if the matrix is an estimation result from a multinomial logistic regression using -mlogit-, and the multinomial outcome variable has value labels, which are copied to the row and column equation names. (If the value labels contain unpaired right double quotes, then even -qrowname- will fail, but fortunately this does not often happen.)

Best wishes
