Here's a simpler question: How can I have simulate *return* just the
initial value of c(seed)?  Nick suggested the following code, which
takes c(seed) as an argument, but doesn't return it.  Thanks in
advance for your help.

capture program drop TrialProgram
program define TrialProgram
       clear
       set obs 9000
       capture drop x y
       drawnorm x y
       regress y x
end
