Hello to all the hard working team members who have work on building this beloved gretl.
I have another item on the wish-list.
I found that Ordinary least squares as formula only works when I have no more than 5
variables. Otherwise, the file commend item is dimmed.
Would it be hard to make gretl to formulate multiple lines of the formula?
I can try to write a script to do just that. Do I have to, or should I give it a try?
