At the recent gretl conference Stefano Fachin agreed to produce a
quick "for dummies" guide to making a gretl function package.
He has been as good as his word, and his Guide is now at
There's also a link to it on the main gretl webpage.
Can someone please explain ,
1.how to change the reference category in multinomial logic estimation in Gretl

This release was accelerated by a rather nasty bug (which somehow

produce an out-of-sample forecast after estimating a VAR.
Those using a reasonably current snapshot will already have the
relevant fix in place.
