st: Saving matrices with -simulate-

Dear Statalisters,

I am using -simulate- to write a bootstrap routine.  In addition to
the usual statistics (coefficient estimates), I would like -simulate-
to save additional information that my program returns as a matrix.

In the following toy example, -myboot- returns the coefficients and a
matrix "seed" with the random seed that I created inside the program.
But "seed" is not saved in every bootstrap iteration; -simulate- only
saves the coefficients.  (This is just for illustration, of course.)

Thanks for any pointers.

Best, Bert

cap program drop myboot
program define myboot, eclass

	local seed = round( runiform()*1000000, 1 )
	set seed `seed'
	reg mpg rep78 trunk weight
	mat seed = ( `seed' )
	mat list seed
	ereturn matrix seed=seed

sysuse auto, clear

reg mpg rep78 trunk weight
mat coeffs = e(b)

simulate , reps(10): myboot

ereturn list
