Nick, thank you for your help with this.  The results from applying

The "unrecognized command" message appears to come from Stata not finding _matwrite. At least it is easy to generate that message by calling a non-existent routine. Perhaps _matwrite isn't in the path or perhaps it doesn't have execute or read permission.
