I think you are looking at the wrong package. -matewmf- will

do this. It is more entertaining to write your own

as a couple of -forval- loops.

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

. mat a = (1,2,-2,-1)

. matewmf a b, f(abs)

. mat li b

b[1,4]

c1 c2 c3 c4

r1 1 2 2 1

I am trying to transform a matrix A into matrix B where B's elements are the abolute values of A's. B[i,j] = | A[i,j] | I found Nick's -matodd- but it seems not to have an -abs- elementwise option.* * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
