Very nice toolbox, but how can i get econometric datas, can I read datas from Yahoo or 
Google from the downloaded csv or better even directly?
Comment from Eric DUBOIS -- March 8, 2012, 10:54:05 AM    

You can use Scilab functions read_cvs or Grocer function impexc2bd to read csv files (the
latter is an extension of the former aimed at dealing with time series). Under Scilab Help
read_cvs or help impexc2bd (provided you have installed Grocer) will provide you
information on the operating of these functions.

As regards a direct access, could you give me an example (as  a comment or, better I
think, at the devoted e-mail, so that I can explore the question?
