The first answer sounds like -st_numscalar()- to me. See -help
m4_stata-. 

The second question has numerous possible answers. You need to be more
precise about what you want.

I am doing a simulation analysis in Stata. However I need to use some
linear algebra and I am using Mata for this. The outcome is a scalar
in Mata. But
I could not find a way to transfer this to Stata. The problem is
although I am using "st_store()" Stata is giving conformability error
since my data set is n and the scalar has one observation. Also I need
to repeat this and get an observation from each data set in the
simulation. Is there a way to deal with this problem? Thanks.
