<> Have you had a look at -displayas()- ([M-5])? Assuming you are a Stata 11 user, you can also search the pdf manual for -mata- for the word "suppress". It does appear a couple of times... HTH Martin -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Kramer Sent: Sonntag, 15. November 2009 10:11 To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: How do I suppress output in mata? Hello - I'm working in Stata version 10 on a Mac. I've just written my first function in mata and I need some help. My function takes a column vector of length r, and creates a r x r matrix with elements that equal 1 if two elements of the column vector are the same, and zero otherwise. The function works well, except for the fact that it returns the r x r matrix to the screen. Since the vectors that I need to input are 5000-6000 rows long, this is a problem. I've tried typing "quietly" before I execute the function in mata, and that returns the error: invalid expression r(3000); I've tried adding the word "quietly" before the return line in my function, i.e.: quietly return(WDY0) but then I got this error message: 'return' found where almost anything else expected I've looked through the "programing" and "mata" documentation, along with Stata help and the statalist archives (and Google) and can't figure out a solution to this problem. If anyone has an answer, it would be much appreciated. I've included the text of my program below. Thank you for your consideration, Kramer *this is a do-file to create the function "district" * "district" takes the district number observation from each school and * creates a matrix whose elements are one if school i != school j AND if * school i and school j are in the same district *INPUTS: T = column vector of district numbers from a given year * OUTPUT: WDY0 = matrix whose elements are one if school i != school j AND if * school i and school j are in the same district mata: real matrix district(real colvector T) { real scalar r real matrix A real matrix B real scalar i real matrix WDY0 r = rows(T) A = J(r,r,0) for(i=1; i<=r; i++){ A[i,.]=T' } B = J(r,r,0) for(i=1; i<=r; i++){ B[.,i]=T } WDY0 = A - B for(i=1; i<=r; i++){ for(j=1; j<=r; j++){ if((WDY0[i,j]==0) & (i!=j)) WDY0[i,j] = 1 else WDY0[i,j]=0 } } return(WDY0) } mata mosave district(), dir(/Users/Kramer/Desktop/Thesis/) replace end * * 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/ * * 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/
