AW: st: Extracting from returned Matrix

Well, I do know -post- from a recent article in the Stata Journal... Trouble
with your code is that it does not run, at least not on my machine. I get
r(603), saying " file /tmp.dta could not be opened". The real problem was
that I did not try to create a (second) matrix first and then to extract the
coeffs. I was experimenting with something along the lines of
"e(ci_normal)[1,2]" which led to no good...

You say you want to use -post- but you don't show your code, so I'm
not sure where the problem is:

webuse fuel, clear
mean mpg*, vce(bootstrap)
mat ci=e(ci_normal)
postfile t row lb ub using /tmp, replace
post t (1) (ci[1,1]) (ci[1,2])
post t (2) (ci[2,1]) (ci[2,2])
postutil clear
use /tmp
