I realise that when converting my previous query to text, some of the formatting messed things up!

My basic question is: is there a way of working with the output of quadchk analogous to using matrix Results=r(table) or the parmest command? 

I am using quadchk repeatedly to check the fits of a series of xtlogit commands within a foreach loop in a DO file. What I would like to do is to write the quadchk output to a matrix and then to check within the DO file whether the relative differences are too large, outputting a warning for the user. This would save people having to check the quadchk output manually.

Ie I'd like to write something like:

Quietly Xtlogit MyVar, i(TrialCluster)
Quietly quadchk

Matrix TempDiffs = XXXXXXXX
If TempDiffs[X,Y]>10^(-3) {

Display "Warning: quadchk indicates fit unreliable"

I've done "return list" and "ereturn list" after quadchk but can't find these differences in the stored output...
