some bugs and issues
by Talha Yalta
I would like to report a few problems or issues:
1)- In the "Restrict based on criterion" window, if I use comma as
the decimal sign I get a syntax error.
2)- Why is it that many of the tests are not available when WLS (and
heteroscedasticity corrected OLS) is used? I am asking this because I
can easily obtain the same results with whighting the model manually,
in which case I can also use the White test etc.(and see H0 is
3)- When I add observations using Data>Add observations, the forecasts
window still says "There are no observations available for forecasting
out of sample...". (after Cochrane-Orcutt, HL, PW etc.)
4)- When I import a data file with labels, gretl gives the message:
"first row label "xxx", last label "zzz" label strings can't be
consistent dates" This is not an error message right? Because it
sounds like one. I think the "label strings can't be consistent dates"
part is unnecessary and confusing. What do you think?
5)- IMO the data menu (along with the variable menu) is really too
long. How about considering the following changes to make it look less
a)- Removing the refresh window item. (I don't know if it is
really needed. Besides it doesn't even look like it belongs to the
b)- Making a default named list called "all variables" and
removing the "select all" item. Also, could you provide a means to
delete such lists.
c)- Having a single entry for compact data and expand data
