Sergiy mentions -matsave- (also available from SSC). That falls strictly into the 'or Whatever' category, as it only allows you to save Stata matrices as Stata binary datasets, not as ASCII files (a function also performed by matin4-matout4 on SSC). As Ben Jann said, if you want to create an ASCII file with the contents of a matrix, use -mat2txt-.

Alternatively, you can always -svmat- to a set of new variables and - outsheet- only the relevant observations of those variables. Low tech, but it works.
