There's no settable parameter, but there should be no size
limitation. What version of gretl are you using and what error
are you getting?
I just tried opening Stock and Watson's big "Project Star"
dataset, estimated and saved a model, showed and saved a graph,
and saved the session, in a file of about 414 Kb.
waverley:~/src/build/gui2$ ls -l star.gretl
-rw-r--r-- 1 cottrell users 414283 2009-07-11 14:48 star.gretl
And the session file re-opened OK.

If you have a variable, say "unit", which identifies the
cross-sectional units in the data:
summary <varlist> --by=unit
(This requires gretl >= 1.8.2.)
See also the functions pmax, pmin, pnobs, psd (under Help/
Function reference). We don't an equivalent of Stata's
xttab at present.
