I'm trying to use structures for the first time and am having a little trouble. I want the function markups to take three arguments (s,p,b) and return three arguments (margins, marks, and costs). I'm getting back one My code is: mata struct mups{ /*define the structure*/ real matrix margins real matrix marks real matrix costs } struct mups function markups(s,p,b) /*define the function*/ { struct mups scalar ms /*declare structure variable*/ n=rows(s) S=J(n,n,0) for(i=1;i<=n;i++){ for(j=1;j<=n;j++){ S[i,j]=-b*s[i]*s[j] } } for(i=1;i<=n;i++){ S[i,i]=-b*s[i]*s[i]+b*s[i] } Omega=I(n)*S ms.margins=invsym(Omega)*s ms.costs=p-ms.margins ms.marks=(p-ms.costs):/p return(ms) } end When I evaluate my function, I get back what something like 0x27c65c instead of the three vectors margins, costs, and marks. I'd really appreciate it if somebody could tell me what I'm doing wrong.
