RE: st: Kwallis in a loop [now p-value of the Kwallis]
Your answer strengthens my previous argument.
-makematrix- just cannot fulfil all the expectations
you have of it. If you omit the spaces in
max(chiprob(r(df), r(chi2_adj) + 1e-20),.0001)
you might get -makematrix- to behave the way you want,
as the argument of -from()- is parsed on spaces,
but you are still ignoring my strong advice not to do it
I am at a loss to see why you prefer this route to
that of a program designed to tackle your problem
directly. No programming on your part is required.
