There are two answers possible depending on whether you want to write a program which can easily be used by others, or you are just want a program that is only occationally going to be used by you. If you are writing a program for others you could write a program that is going to be read by -predict-. You have to return the name of that program in e(predict). Common practice is to call it programname_p, where programname is the name of the main program. -help _pred_se- gives you lots of pointers on how to write such a program for a single equation model, and with some puzzeling and looking at already existing predict programs you can figure out how to generalize it to a multi equation model. If you are just creating the program for your own use it is probably much more easy to figure out how to derive the quantities you want using the linear predictor (you will have to do that also when you are writing the -predict- command).
