Dear Nick and others,
The TRUTH.... I need to send this matrix to someone who is using GAUSS....
that is why I wanted to just generate this matrix and send it across. This
matrix will then be used for simulations.
On the stata manual, i agree... unfortunately i do not have the manuals at
home (only in school) and so could not look it up toute suite today being a
Sunday. Anyway, I will look at them when i am in school tomorrow.
Thanks,
Gauri
