I have written a program and I would like to have Stata save and store a
scalar (e.g., "hello") in r(); suppose the value of hello is .52.
Below is a silly example. The general documentation can be found by
typing in Stata -help return-

*------------------- begin example ------------------
clear all
program define helloworld, rclass // note: rclass
     // do other stuff
     return scalar hello = .52

return list
*------------------ end example ---------------------

Hope this helps,
