Hi Riccardo,
Thank you so much for your response and the excellent document and gretl programming.
I will try the revised bootstrap syntax.
Re the simultaneous restrictions, I could not open the BQ data - probably I did not adequately download the data. Anyway, I will also use my data and compare my current results from RATS with what I can obtain from your syntax. Your syntax would save tremendous time if it works.Thank you again,Jay

Uh, you're right. There's an undocumented fourth parameter to SVAR_boot: 
it's an optional boolean "quiet" flag, which defaults to 1.

Supplying a 0 as fourth parameter to SVAR_boot, as in

SVAR_boot(&Model, 1000, 0.95, 0)

should do the trick.

I'll update the documentation asap.

AFAIK, it should. Does the example script "BlQuah_w_sr.inp" (available in 
the "Resources" directory) work for you?
