st: basic quesion about using structures in mata |

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. Thanks, Matt
