we have noticed that the getQuandl contributed function package has
stopped working. This package could be used to fetch data series from
the Quandl website, but that site was bought by Nasdaq and changed its
name. (Nasdaq Data Link, or see data.nasdaq.com
) Therefore, the access
URLs that the package used are no longer valid.
We have contacted the package author, and hopefully the package will be
adapted. But in the meantime let me ask, who among the gretl users knew
the Quandl data source and/or were using the getQuandl package?
Of course we know that the majority of users are not on this mailing
list, but still any feedback would be interesting. This may also
influence the decision on whether to retire the package in case it were
no longer maintained.
thanks for any reactions on this
