Sorry about that, but it does not indicate any problem with gretl
itself. What happened was that I forgot to
before reading the NIST data files, when NLS is in force. So when
running in Spanish, the gretl NIST plugin is getting a corrupted
version of both the test data and the standard results (which use "."
for the decimal point). I have fixed this in CVS.
Outside of the (new) NIST plugin, the setlocale() apparatus is
correctly in place, so the results from gretl itself should match
precisely regardless of the current decimal separator.
