Nick,

Thanks for advice and the references. Rafa

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)

I have access to Stata 9 only when I am in the University, in

my laptop I

have version 8.
