Package for econometric analysis (i.e. statistical analysis of economic data). The GNU Regression, Econometric and Time-Series Library (gretl) is a software package for econometric analysis. It is currently at an experimental, "alpha", stage. The package comprises a shared library, a command-line client program, and a graphical client built using GTK+. It also has an interface to GNU R for greater functionality. Very user-friendly and reasonably sophisticated.
