I am trying to follow the example of the monte carlo demonstration on p 234 of the Stata Reference Manual R under simulate.

When I submit . simulate _b _se , reps(10000):hetero1 3 I get the following error

too few ')' or ']'
an error occurred when simulate executed hetero1

I do not see how my parentheses are unbalanced so I am not sure what is causing this error.
Tom Steichen identified the likely location of errors in your reproduction of -hetero1-.

I just wanted to add that, more generally, you may need to write somewhat more complicated programs than -hetero1- to use with -simulate-.
It is best to run and debug your user-written programs before calling them with -simulate-. You can identify offending lines or sections of code using the -trace- utilities. See -help trace- and [P] trace.
