OK. Jamie's solution is still presumably better in Stata 8. When Jeroen and then I wrote some crude matrix add-ons in 1997-2000, -vec()- had not been implemented, I believe. STB-56 dm79 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Yet more new matrix commands (help matcorr, matewmf, matvsort, svmat2 if installed) . . N. J. Cox 7/00 pp.4--8; STB Reprints Vol 10, pp.17--23 commands to produce a correlation matrix, elementwise monadic function of another matrix, selected subsets of matrix rows and columns, vec or vech of a matrix, elements sorted within a vector, matrix from a vector, and commands to save matrices STB-50 dm69 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Further new matrix commands (help matdelrc, matewm, matmad, matpow if installed) . . . N. J. Cox 7/99 pp.5--9; STB Reprints Vol 9, pp.29--34 collection of new matrix commands providing additional matrix checking, management, element-wise operators, maximum absolute difference, and power STB-39 dm49 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Some new matrix commands (help matfunc, varfunc if installed) . . . . . . . . . . . J. Weesie 9/97 pp.17--20; STB Reprints Vol 7, pp.43--48 collection of new matrix commands; several for explicit matrices and a few for implicit matrices (i.e., variables) Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk > -----Original Message----- > From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu]On Behalf Of > R.E.
