ADF test

Good M:)
About this test i think it would add value if we could analyse the residual correlogram. Sometimes it is not
clear that the 'automatic' decision is the one we would select.

Gretl functions: the "dataset" command

Dear Gretl Team,

I would like to know if there exists a way to use "dataset" command inside a function. Please take a look at my code:

<hansl>
open australia.gdt

function list anualizar(series x)
    dataset compact 1 last
end function

eval anualizar(PAU)
</hansl>

Best,
Henrique Andrade

auto-dropping collinear variables from a list


This is a request I've had quite a few times in private conversations, and 
something I've had to do more than once in my own projects, so I thought 
it'd be good to "share the wisdom".

<hansl>
function list autodrop(list X, scalar criterion[1.0e-12])
     list drop = null
     matrix R
     qrdecomp({X}, &R)

     scalar ndrop = 0
     loop i=1..nelem(X) --quiet
         if criterion > abs(R[i,i])
             drop += X[i]
             ndrop++
         endif
     endloop

     if ndrop > 0
         printf "%d collinear variables dropped (%s)\n", \
           ndrop, varname(drop)
         return X - drop
     else
         return X
     endif
end function
</hansl>

I'm just about to add the above trick to the "Cheat Sheet" chapter of the 
User's guide.

Gretl conference Berlin 2015 reminder

Dear Gretl list,

as the local organizer let me remind you of the upcoming biannual
conference, http://www.gretlconference.org/.

You can no longer submit papers for presentation, but you can still
register as a non-presenting participant. Simply email us at
GC2015@... or me personally.

Also there are pre-booked hotel rooms available, but this pre-booking
arrangement with the hotel rooms expires in two days (which is actually
the reason why I'm sending this message today). Contact me by email if
you're interested and I will send you the booking forms directly.

Let me add that if you're still not sure whether to come to the
conference, the hotels have a cancellation policy. So you could pre-book
a room and then, if you decide later that you cannot attend, you should
be able to cancel the room at no cost (under certain conditions, please
read the booking forms carefully; we are not responsible for your hotel
booking).

A preliminary program of the conference should be available soon.

Thank you, and hope to see you in Berlin in June,
Sven

Problem: gretl 1.9.14-2 on Ubuntu and Linux Mint

=== KNOWN ISSUE ===

The 32-bit ("i386") version of the gretl 1.9.14-2 package for 
Ubuntu/Mint WILL NOT RUN on computers that don't support the AVX 
instruction set. This includes all CPUs that date from before 
2011. Gretl will fail as soon as you try to do anything, 
with the message "Illegal instruction" on standard error output.

This is due to an error in the Ubuntu build process. We're currently 
working to resolve the problem, but please note that the gretl team 
does not produce the packages offered by the various Linux 
distributions, so we're not in a position to fix this sort of thing 
directly.

gretl no funciona

Estimados señores:

He tratado de trabajar con Gretl en UBUNTU 14.04 y Liux Mint 17.1, pero 
en ninguno de los casos funciona. Se abre y recibe los datos pero cuando 
trato de realizar un análisis con los modelos o cuando trato de crear un 
gráfico el programa se cierra.

Gracias por su ayuda.

why does gretl shut down after one command?


<!-- .ExternalClass .ecxhmmessage P { padding:0px; } .ExternalClass body.ecxhmmessage { font-size:12pt; font-family:Calibri; } -->
hi, everyone,

 I installed gretl in the software manager of Linux Mint 17.1.(See the attached).  I open gretl and open a dataset, but I cannot do anything (ols, genr, etc) because I type the "enter" key and gretl will shut down without any notifications.

thanks in advance!

No, what you have is the latest release. That message was wrong, but 
it should be fixed now.

gretl 1.10.1

Sorry for the churn, but I've just released gretl 1.10.1 as a quick 
fix for breakage in the "adf" command in 1.10.0.

The bug meant that anyone accepting the default behavior of the ADF 
test (non-GLS version) would encounter a spurious error. This seemed 
lame enough to warrant an immediate fix.

A possible bug for ADF test in 1.10.90

Dear All!

With denmark.gdt In the GUI: check LRM, Variable->Unit root tests -> Augmented Dickey Fuller test
Default option to check both "with constant" and  "with constant and trend"
gives "incompatible options". Checked with constant and with constant and trend separately
works OK.
Best,
Oleg Komashko
