### Running gretlcli on Mac OS X


If I want to execute the commandline gretl on OS X  will this suffice (in a terminal of course)?

/Applications/Gretl.app/Contents/Resources/bin/gretlcli  <any options>

### Problems running X-13-ARIMA-SEATS

Dear
However,  when I use the option x12arima in the command "arma" the gretl returns:
"Failed to run x12arima. The system cannot find the specific file."
I must say that x12arma is correctly located at Tools/Preferences/General/programs.
I would be grateful for help to solve this problem

Not "out of the box". You'd have to calculate that yourself.

### Favor: code of the TRAMO program

Good morning.

My name is Dario Hernández, i am student of master in statistic of National University of Colombia, i have been checking your main page and in this i read that the codes are open-source software, i would like to get the codes of TRAMO, this codes are very useful for my thesis, because of the following reasons, first at all, this codes  not only are based on the paper of Gomez & Marraval 1994, which is very important for me, but also are fundamental in order to understand  how i can program the equations that appear in Gomez & Marraval 1994.

I have already subscribed me at the mailing list.

### draw a specific fitted line

Dear gretl users,

I trying to draw a specific fitted line into a scatter plot. However, I
can't figure out how the series called "fitted" in the example below
does appear as a straight line. The option --with-lines=fitted does not
solve the issue. Does anybody have a nice solution to this?

<hansl>
open denmark.gdt --quiet

series D = (diff(LRY)>0)       # define dummy
series d_LRY = diff(LRY)
series DLRY = D*d_LRY        # interaction term
series dM = diff(LRM)
ols dM 0 d_LRY DLRY            # Threshold OLS
series fitted = $yhat gnuplot dM fitted d_LRY --output=display \ { set style line 1 lc rgb 'blue' pt 6 ; \ set style line 2 lc rgb 'red' pt 5 ; } <\hansl> Best, Artur  8 Nov 17:06 2014 ### Re: GARCH variant forecasting Am 08.11.2014 um 15:48 schrieb Karthik Raju: > Hello Sven, Please send these things to the gretl mailing list, not by private email.

That's what research is about, it's nothing gretl-specific. good luck, sven  7 Nov 11:31 2014 ### problems compiling gretl Dear all, I am trying to install gretl cvs on the linux distribution "elementary os" (has an ubuntu-base). Unfortunately, I obtain an error when running the "make" (not yet "sudo make install") command. I attached a log-file which I don't understand. The full compilation command I used within the "/cvs/gretl" folder is given by: ./configure --prefix=/opt --enable-openmp --enable-build-doc && make Does anybody have a clue what's the error here?

Hi everybody, I'm wondering whether some of the function packages are still needed, because sometimes it looks as if the same functionality is already built into gretl. Here's a quick list in random order: 1) "clustered_ols" by Claudia Pigini. In what way is this different from the built-in "ols ... --cluster=xyz"? 2) "cnumber" by Monsueto, S.E -- Here I don't think it's redundant but I'm not getting the same results as with other code that should (?) be equivalent. Consider this example and please explain why the results are different: <hansl> include cnumber.gfn open greene12_1.gdt matrix X = {age, income, expend} cnumber (X) l = eigensym(X'X, null) # lines taken from Allin's email CN = maxc(l)/minc(l) # printf "CN = %g, (square root = %g)\n", CN, sqrt(CN) </hansl> 3) "fgls" by Yi-Nung Yang: the help just says feasible GLS which is very vague and generic; in what way is this different from gretl's "hsk" or "wls" commands? If it is different, I would suggest to make the help text more informative. 4) "GHegy" by Ignacio Díaz-Emparanza and "HEGY_test" by Jack Lucchetti. Could you guys perhaps consolidate these? 5) "HoltWinters" by Ignacio Díaz-Emparanza. This sounds a lot like it's also done by the "fcModels" package by Yi-Nung Yang. Is this true? 6) "JB" by Yi-Nung Yang. This does a Jarque-Bera test and even the help text mentions that it is built into gretl (as "normtest ... --jbera"). So it's not obvious to me what the purpose of the package is. 7) "MWU" and "mwu" by Yi-Nung Yang. AFAICS the only difference is whether you pass the arguments as series or as vectors (matrices). This may be a matter of taste, but personally I would suggest that you choose which is the interface of your function, i.e. series or matrices, and then the user/caller will have to follow that rule, and the other package with the other interface would be gone. And with respect to "mwu_dummy", this is even more of a personal taste thing, but perhaps you could consolidate all this into one function, for example by introducing a third function parameter with a default value: "function void mwu(series x, series y, int dummy[0])" So to do what "mwu_dummy()" does now you would pass your 'group' variable as y, and call the function with dummy=1.
