Hi,

I want to shuffle a list and save the result in a matrix. I tried the
following.

. local var "1/10"

. shuffle `var',num noisily
2 10 4 5 9 7 3 1 6 8

. makematrix,from(r(list)):shuffle `var',num
1 invalid name
r(198);

I use the user-written -shuffle- command but when I use it with -makematrix-
it doesn't work.
I guess I am missing something very basic. Could somebody help ?

Thanks in advance,
Indranil
