gretl - GNU Regression, Econometrics and Time-series Library

gretl [ options ] [ datafile | scriptfile | sessionfile ]

gretl is an econometrics package, built around a shared library which may be accessed using a command-line client program (gretlcli) or a graphical user interface (gretl_x11). The program gretl is a wrapper script that calls the GUI if the DISPLAY environment variable is set, otherwise the command-line client.

For details, please start up either the GUI or the command-line client and consult the online help, or read the printed manual, which is available in PDF format via the gretl website,

These are the options supported by the gretl_x11 program; gretlcli is a little different.
