I can't find it now, but I think Sven posted a comment not so long ago about setting a list within an array. IIRC the point was that the following did not work when it seemed like it should:

Hi Allin, I don't remember it myself right now. However, in the recent thread about "variable selection" I wrote:

"And slightly OT about gretl internals: Along the way I've noticed two things. The first is that the deflist() function doesn't accept a vector of series IDs as input, in the way that genr-based list construction like "list L = {1,2}" does; maybe deflist should accept that.
The second thing is that it would be nice to have a generalization of the varnum() function, to return a vector of series IDs for a list input. See my workaround helper function listIDs in the file. (This would be a bit like the generalization of varname to varnames, for example.)"

open somedata.gdt
lists LL = array(3)
LL[1] = 1 2 3 # incompatible types error

Anyway, the intent was indeed that this should work, and now in today's git it does.

Thanks anyway, whether or not I had mentioned that :-)
