At first I would like to thank you for your help! But I'm a little
bit confused with this:

You're not allowed to specify dates with the --out-of-sample
option; it's a shorthand form that figures the dates for you.
In my humble opinion this is not very intuitive. As we know,
the "--out-of-sample" option gives us static forecasts inside
the sample and dynamic one outside the sample, so, (again)
in my humble opinion sometimes an user will need perform
a forecast like that:
*smpl* ; 1990:1
"VAR" <- *var* 4 lpau lpus le *--seasonals --quiet*
*dataset* addobs 4
*fcast* 1972:1 1992:1 *--out-of-sample*
What do you think?
