You can save a matrix to variables using 
-svmat-. Then your goal is two steps away. 
This is indicated by the help for -matrix-
or a -search- for -save matrix-. 

-svmat2- from STB-56 had a couple of extra 
tweaks. 

If you wanted to do this a lot, you might 
be better off writing your own program 
using -file-. However, there are precision  
issues to be aware of.
