Hi all

I'm trying to do a loot with a nested -ttesti- but I couldn't do it. I
have two vector with different means (m1 and m2) and another two with
each mean's standard deviation (s1 and s2). This vectors are quite
large, so do -ttesti- element for element could be very costly. Also,
I have each sample's size on two variables: n1 and n2. All this values
are obtained from a logistic regresion. After run -ttesti- I want to
save the t-statistic -r(t)- and the probability for two-sided p-value
-r(p)-. I'm doing something like this:

forvalues i=1/size(m1) {    /* how can i get vector's size? */
		ttesti n1 m1[1,`i'] s1[1,`i'] n1 m1[1,`i'] s1[1,`i']
		mat tvalues[1,`i']=r(t)
		mat pvalues[1,`i']=r(p)

But appears a lot of errors: 1) n1 should be integer. 2) 'm1' found
where number expected. 3) varlist not allowed.
How can I solve this?
