I have just tested all of this in my script, and all works ok!
That's good to hear, thanks!
I only wonder whether it is convenient that the option /c (in
"cmd /c") be always implicitly run, since in building my script
I had to run it several times with option /k to check the output
of the commands executed in the shell ...
In today's snapshot, if the environment variable SHELLDEBUG is
set, then gretl will use "cmd /k" instead of "cmd /c" for
commands (this is a Windows-only thing).
Something else that might be useful in today's build: extending
the idea of named strings, we now have a few "built-in" string
@gretldir : gretl installation directory
@userdir : user's gretl directory
@gnuplot : the path to gnuplot, as known by gretl
@tramo: ditto for tramo executable
@x12a : ditto for x-12-arima executable
@tramodir : tramo data directory
@x12adir : x-12-arima data directory
These are not Windows-only. You can use these in scripts, e.g.
printf "The tramo data dir is @tramodir\n"
