Suppose we have a matrix BETA with -rownames- and -colnames-.Given the names of a row and of a column in BETA, it is possible toextract the indices of that row and of that column, as shown below.But is there an equally simple approach to the reverse problem? Imean: Given a row index, is there an elegant way to extract the nameof that row?

mata: string scalar getRowName(string scalar matname, real scalar row) { return(st_matrixrowstripe(matname)[row, 2]) } end

mata: getRowName("BETA", 5) -- Phil * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
