Ok, but in that example "endogenous" is a list, so this implies that the user
should define it first:
list endogenous = income
list components = decomp(endogenous)
and I think that, given that my function does not need more than one input
variable, gretl should have a way to obtain the same effect with only one
list components = decomp(income)
May be the function "varname()" of the "sprintf" command can help in doing
something like that?
