The GNU Regression,
Econometric and Time-Series Library (gretl) is a software package for
econometric analysis. It has a graphical user interface and can be used
together with X-12-ARIMA, TRAMO/SEATS, and R.
The package consists of libgretl (a shared library) which
provides various functions relating to econometric estimation, a
command-line client program, and a graphical user interface built using
Gretl offers an intuitive user interface; it is very easy to
get up and running with econometric analysis.
Libgretl is based on ESL, a standalone console based
- Easy, intuitive interface

- Output models as LaTeX files, in tabular or equation format
- Integrated scripting language: enter commands either via
the gui or via script
- Command loop structure for Monte Carlo simulations and
iterative estimation procedures
- GUI controller for fine-tuning Gnuplot
- Links to R,
for further data analysis
