this may not be terribly important, but I am wondering about the
justification of the menu entry 'File / Send to...', which seems to send
the current dataset/workfile via email.
Isn't it strange that an econometrics program sends email? I would guess
this is a legacy feature, does anybody really use it? I mean it's
obvious that people send around gretl files by email, but there are
specialized programs for that. The same argument is behind the fact that
requests for more spreadsheet functionality in gretl have been
repeatedly (and rightly) rejected.
Or if you keep it, why not be able to send session files (.gretl),
possibly among other formats?
So on the road to gretl 2.0 I suggest to ditch this. Now is the time to
make those kind of changes.
