I have two questions. First, is this the correct list to post this question? I am not sure if it belongs here or in the gretl-devl list. Apologies, if I have guessed wrongly.


Second, regarding accessing a list element. Should following assign the data in the first series of lstX to matrix matX?


matrix matX = {lstX[1]}


Currently, this yields the matX = series id number. This question is related to an earlier question on the list see below.

Actually, that seems a bit lame. Now in CVS and snapshots you

can do that -- the expression above should now work (apart

from the typo of "varnam" for "varname" ;-).
