Suppose I form say a filename using some string operations, something like

myfilename = prefix + "-" + suffix

and then want to save something along the lines of

mata matsave {myfilename} Matrix1 Matrix2 Matrix3

Is there any way to have Mata go into the contents of myfilename
object there, rather than create the file "myfilename.mmat" in the
current directory? Or may be explicit version

mata matsave prefix+"-"+suffix Matrix1 Matrix2 Matrix3
