Subject   st: how can I tell Stata to draw many random samples without replacement

Dear statalisters, I have a probability distribution of a random variable with 
only two values [-1,1] each with the same density [0.5]. I would like to draw N 
number of random samples without replacement from my original sample S, such 
that each of these new samples keeps the existing balance of values only with 
different orderings. To illustrate the point:
S    rs1     rs2    rs3
1     -1     -1      1
-1    -1      1     -1
-1     1     -1     -1
1      1      1      1
Any thoughts on how to achieve this would be highly appreciated. Thanks.
