Nice. Doesn't really eliminate the middle man, but could
be useful in some contexts.

Ben Jann is quite correct in noting that my solution might lose precision. It would indeed be better (and a simpler solution) to use a Stata scalar in the first place:


. mata:st_numscalar("besser",st_matrix("e(b)")[1,1])

. di besser
-.32384535

. di %20.16f besser
 -0.3238453484509378
