I have just revisited a Midas script of mine, and when I saw something like:
midasreg dep const ownlag; mds(dIP, 0,4, 1, theta)
I was scratching my head and asked myself, OK what on earth was that
specification again? Gretl's Midas doc of course reveals that the "1" in
there means "normalized exponential Almon", but this is really not user
friendly I dare to say.
I suggest that instead of an integer code there should be string aliases
like "nexpAlmon" (and e.g. "u" for unrestricted, "Almon",
Would that --or something similar-- be doable?
