I don't understand the question. The J(nrow, ncol, value) function in both Stata and Mata creates a rectangular array which can be any shape (including row or column vector and, in Mata, an object with 0 rows and/or columns). It does not have anything to do with symmetry.

Is there something in Mata like J() that creates a regular matrix as
opposed to a symmetric matrix? In other words, I'd like to create a
mXn matrix filled w/ empty values that I will fill in later.
