Hi Andrew,

I knew this command, but it seems not perfectly fit.

My matrix is like this:

mymat=(0,3,2,4\3,0,1,6\2,1,0,5\4,6,5,0)

and I need something like:

0,2,3,4
0,1,3,6
0,1,2,5
0,4,5,6

Thank you
Simone

Hi Simone,

Is mata's sort() function what you're looking for? Try "help mata sort()"

Eg:
mata
mymat = (3 \ 1 \ 4 \ 2), (6 \ 7 \ 8 \ 9)
mymat
sort(mymat,1)
end

Best,
Andrew Maurer

Hi,

Is there a canned command to sort rows in ascending order in Mata without exporting the matrix to Stata and using the rowsort()?

I need to do that in Mata because the marix is very large (more than 1000 by 1000) and once I export the matrix to Stata I have rounding errors that make the matrix slightly different from the original.

Thank you in advance.
