hi, loading the time series package (TSP) tells me that "Statistics`DescriptiveStatistics` is now obsolete." "LinearAlgebra`MatrixManipulation` is now obsolete" ok, so i commented out those two lines in the m file. things load fine, and many things work fine. but in particular, in section 1.6.1 of the TSP help, the LongAREstimate is too long to print, and the HannanRissanenEstimate comes out different and takes way longer to print. (to be specific, example 6.6 and example 6.7 of section 1.6.1). so i went back to the original m file for the TSP. i don't know yet if _all_ the answers in the help file will be unchanged; but in particular the hannan rissanen and long AR came out unchanged, when i let the TSP load the two obsolete packages. in short, if you use the TSP and especially if you wrote it! you need to note that its help files with and without the obsolete packages loaded do not get the same answers (at least for hannan rissanen and long AR). vale, rip -- NB eddress is r i p 1 AT c o m c a s t DOT n e t
