Re: st: matrix question

Another way to do this is a combination of -svmat- & -keep-/-drop- & -mkmat-
to move to data area and use familiar -keep- or -drop- there. But because
this uses data area, you have to take care of your data in memory first
perhaps using -preserve- and -restore- afterwards.
Try this:

preserve
drop _all
svmat mat1, name(col)
drop if ratsect~=999999
mkmat _all, mat(mat2)
restore

Hope this will help,
Ichiro
