Thanks to Kit Baum, 

-makematrix- has been updated on SSC. Some 
results of Herve Stolowy pointed to a bug, 
which was then explained by Alan Riley. 
This is now fixed. -makematrix- requires 
Stata 8. 

As some will have gathered, I have mixed 
feelings about -makematrix-. If you want 
to produce matrices, it is, long run or 
even short run, much better strategy to 
learn Stata's matrix language _and_ Mata. But 
if that's not yet on your horizon, -makematrix- 
may help your problem. 

-sq- has also been updated on SSC. This 
is an ancient program to take old-style 
graphics and change their aspect ratio. 
It requires Stata 7 as a minimum -- and 
in a strong sense as a maximum too, as 
it _only_ works on old-style graphs, 
those produced by -gr7- in Stata 8/9 terms. 
The _only_ part was not obvious to some users, 
so I changed the help file to try to make 
this clear.
