Two earlier versions of this posting appeared yesterday. They referred to Mata. As with other concurrent threads, questions that are not precise, or even stated, or which seem to be easily answerable from the documentation tend to get little or no response. I have two further comments: 1. Functions to read Stata variables into Mata are well documented in the Mata documentation. You shouldn't need to write any new functions. See -help m4_stata-. 2. As you don't state what you want to do with these matrices, it isn't clear whether your inclination to use Mata is right for your problem.
