Abstract.  Mata is Stata’s matrix language. In the Mata Matters column, we show how Mata can be used interactively to solve problems and as a programming language to add new features to Stata. The subject of this column is using Mata to read into Stata datasets that are formatted difficultly, which involves Mata’s file processing and string processing capabilities.
