There is an error with Gretl when I try to replicate the example from the
Gretl User's Guide (pg 334) :

 ######SCRIPT OUTPUT############
gretl version 2016d-git
Current session: 2016-11-20 18:07

? clear
? function matrix stata_reorder (matrix se)
> # stata puts the intercept last, but gretl puts it first
> scalar n = rows(se)
> return se[n] | se[1:n-1]
> end function
? open data4-1

? ols 1 0 2 3 --cluster=bedrms --quiet
? matrix se = $stderr
Generated matrix se
? foreign language=stata --send-data
? regress price sqft bedrms, vce(cluster bedrms)
? matrix vcv = e(V)

? end foreign
? matrix stata_vcv = mread("vcv.mat", 1)

In the case that I run the script (gretl_export)from
http://lists.wfu.edu/pipermail/gretl-devel/2013-April/004417.html   in
Stata the matrix is saved in the user director /home/acer.

This is on the same Ubuntu 14.04.
