-pcorr- doesn't save in e(), as it is not an estimation command. 

As the help makes explicit, it saves results in r(). 

You'd need to use Stata functions as indicated in the source code for
-pcorr-. So pick up r-class results and use functions such as -tprob()-.
to save explicitly. 

But given an interest in P-values it's about as easy to use the
equivalent -regress- results.

I use stata version 11. I'd like to use pcorr to compute partial 
correlation coefficients over several lists of variables. I'd like to 
use the returned results for this, but I don't know how to generate the 
p-values as these are not saved by Stata. Is there a simple way of 
calculating these using the results saved in e()?
