Abstract

This paper considers the boundary between classical statistical packages on the one hand, and programming languages on the other. The former are easy to use, but relatively inflexible, while the latter are very flexible, but have steep learning curves. A new class of software is now being developed that allows both flexibility, and ease-of-use. This concept is illustrated by the program GAUSSX, which provides an econometric shell for GAUSS.
