Something like 

a :<= b 

is an expression, which Mata will evaluate. Perhaps you want  
an assignment on the LHS, e.g. 

c = a :<= b

A mata question: when I use the function affinity() [code below] I get
the results I expect, but the colon comparison operations result in the
resulting matrix being written to the Stata results window [quite a
nuisance for logging purposes]. Any thoughts why this happens?


real colvector affinity(real rowvector ai, real matrix aj, real
rowvector sd) {
   real matrix aij, upper, lower

   aij = J(rows(aj), 1, 0)
   upper = J(rows(aj), cols(aj), 0)
   lower = J(rows(aj), cols(aj), 0)

   upper = aj
   printf("upper has %4.0g columns and %9.0g rows\n", cols(upper),

   lower = aj

   // These two operations print out the entire resulting matrix to the
   upper:<= ai+sqrt(sd)
   lower:>= ai-sqrt(sd)

   upper:& lower

   aij = rowsum(upper)
   printf("aij has %4.0g columns and %9.0g rows\n", cols(aij),
