Very good. ANOVA is one of the features I have missed in gretl. I hope that
you will continue to contribute code to gretl.

heckit two-step results
by Michael A Coon

The Heckit two-step command returns estimates for rho and sigma. Can anybody tell me the significance of these estimates?

graph display on Mac OS X
by Daniel Hinderink

hi List,
I installed gretl and also Aquaterm and gnuplot on my mac.
Gretl works except when it comes to display of diagrammes.
That displays an error message "no such file or directory".
Any hints?
thank you,
Daniel

t-stats and p-values after mle
by Stefano Balietti

Is there any accessor to catch the matrix of the p-values and the
matrix of the t stats after performing a ml estimation? $test and
$pvalues don't seem to make my case, as they return a scalar and
anyway they are not filled by the mle command. Maybe they should be
able to return a matrix as well.
Cheers,
Stefano

please test!
by Allin Cottrell

We've had some useful bug reports lately, and I'd just like to
urge anyone who has discovered anything that's not right in gretl
to report sooner rather than later, either here or via the
sourceforge bug-tracker.
The more bugs we can fix before the 1.7.5 release, the better. I
have a feeling this release will be a "keeper". We've fixed a lot
of things lately (besides adding various goodies), and while some
of these were newly introduced bugs, or bugs in newly introduced
features, I believe the bug count must now be substantially lower
than in 1.7.4.

LM Tests in systems
by Mixon, Wilson

Using the dialog box, I can conduct autocorr & arch tests for the equations in a system. Using the following commands, I get the message below.
system name = FullModel
equation 6 0 10 28 11 16 18 24
equation 7 0 10 28 11 17 18 25
equation 8 0 10 28 11 16 19 26
equation 9 0 10 28 11 17 19 27
end system
estimate FullModel method = sur
lmtest --arch --quiet
? lmtest --arch --quiet
Sorry, command not available for this estimator
Suggestions?

GARCH estimation
by yinung CYCU

Dear all
I use gretl 1.7.4 to estimate a GARCH model by using default menu function
(i.e., \Model\Time series\GARCH ) and by the command in console. But they
generate different results. The details of iterations are as follows. Any
idea?

Input data problem
by Krzysztof Dmytrów

Greetings
I have a problem with GRETL 1.7.1 installed from Ubuntu 8.04
repositories. I can open data saved in previous GRETL version from
Ubuntu repositories 1.6.5, I can also open and work on data that was
created under Windows. But when I try to create new data set or when I
try to modify existing data set, I cannot input numbers with decimal
places. When I try to input dot "." as decimall separator or comma
",", in both cases I get the same error message: Extraneous character
',' in data. I would like to say that I created the data in Polish
version of GRETL with "," separator. Here I cannot use neithet "." or
",". I would be extremely grateful for any help.
