#174 Not able to add 2SLS regression to model table

When trying to add 2SLS regressions to the model table I get the error: "Sorry, this model can't be put in the model table".

The model table feature works fine with OLS. I haven't attempted other types of non-OLS regressions.

    [This action is part of a little round of maintenance, sorry for the delay.]

    This behavior still in 1.9.14; I suspect (but don't remember exactly) that this is by design, namely that only OLS (and probably single-equ. models) are allowed. I agree that this limitation feels overly restrictive and IMHO therefore the 'modeltab' business is not super-useful. But that's a matter of taste and in any case would be a feature request and not a bug.

    However, I found out that the docs are not explicit about this and also somewhat circular: the User Guide refers to the 'modeltab' Command Reference, and the command ref. says "See the Gretl User's Guide for details." This is a minor bug (and I'm lowering the severity/priority). If Allin confirms that the OLS limitation is the state of the design, I could add such a note to the docs and then close this bug.

    thanks,
    sven

    Still in 1.9.90 -- Allin, what's the future of modeltab anyway? Is it supposed to only work with OLS by design, or should it be extended to cover other model types in the future?
    Thanks,
