7 The commands defined below may be executed interactively in the
8 command-line client program or in the console window of the GUI
9 program.  They may also be placed in a script'' or batch file for
10 non-interactive execution.
11
12 The following notational conventions are used below:
13
14 \begin{itemize}
15
16 \item A \texttt{typewriter font} is used for material that you would
17   type directly, and also for internal names of variables.
18
19 \item Terms in a \textsl{slanted font} are place-holders: you should
20   substitute some specific replacement.  For example, you might type
21   \texttt{income} in place of the generic \textsl{xvar}.
22
23 \item The construction \texttt{[} \textsl{arg} \texttt{]} means that
24   the argument \textsl{arg} is optional: you may supply it or not (but
25   in any case don't type the brackets).
26
27 \item The phrase estimation command'' means a command that generates
28   estimates for a given model, for example \cmd{ols}, \cmd{ar} or
29   \cmd{wls}.
30
31 \end{itemize}
32
33 In general, each line of a command script should contain one and only
34 one complete \app{gretl} command.  There are, however, two means of
35 continuing a long command from one line of input to another.  First,
36 if the last non-space character on a line is a backslash, this is
37 taken as an indication that the command is continued on the following
38 line.  In addition, if the comma is a valid character in a given
39 command (for instance, as a separator between function arguments, or
40 as punctuation in the command \texttt{printf}) then a trailing comma
41 also indicates continuation.  To emphasize the point: a backslash may
42 be inserted arbitrarily'' to indicate continuation, but a comma
43 works in this capacity only if it is syntactically valid as part of
44 the command.
