Subject: Can gretl be made to use 'snapshot' & automatically update itself?
It seems to me like this might not be an easy task especially for the non code-writing
people like myself.Is there a way of getting gretl to link up with the 'snapshot'
automatically whenever there is a new release and on my promting it to update?
Thanks for the information though
