Developer: TSP International
Latest Release: 5.1 (September 2009)
Operating System: Window, Mac OS, Linux
TSP ("Time Series Processor") is a complete language for the estimation and simulation of econometric models. Although TSP was originally and continues to be developed primarily by economists, there is nothing in its design limiting it to economic times series. Any data consisting of repeated observations of the same variable for different units may be analysed with TSP.

This runs under 32-bit or 64-bit versions of Windows, in conjunction with the Oxmetrics interface program. It has the best graphics of all the versions of TSP. It also includes standalone copies of TSP (both Win32 and "extended DOS") which can be run directly from the command prompt.
This does not include the Oxmetrics interface, but does include everything else listed above under TSP/Oxmetrics - Win32 TSP and DOS/Win TSP. Note that Win32 TSP does not produce graphics. If you already have a copy of Oxmetrics 2.0 or higher, you can order this and get the Oxmetrics 2.30 upgrade and the TSP Module license without having to pay for Oxmetrics a second time.
This version runs under DOS and as an "extended DOS" application under all flavors of Windows (until XP) as well as OS/2. It allows on-screen editing in interactive mode - you can use arrow keys to repeat and edit commands. It also has full-screen graphics.
This version runs on most MAC OS, although a Rosetta translator add-on is needed for Snow Leopard (version 10.6). If Rosetta is not present on the user's machine, when they first run TSP they will be automatically prompted to download/install it (assuming their Mac is connected to the internet). If they upgraded their Mac to Snow Leopard from an earlier OS, it is on the system install disk as an optional install.
Two versions of TSP are included on the Mac OS CD (released 7/28/2010).
TSP 5.1 is currently shipping for any Intel system running Linux (32 bit or 64 bit).
TSP 5.0 is currently shipping on the following Unix platforms.
All the above have gnuplot graphics.
TSP 5.0 is not available for the following systems (TSP 4.5 is available for them)
Since system requirements for Unix can be highly idiosyncratic, please contact us if you have specific questions on whether your machine can run TSP or not.
On all platforms the TSP application (TSP.EXE on PCs) requires about 2mb of hard drive space when decompressed. TSP/Oxmetrics, Win32 TSP, and the TSP help system may require up to 10mb.
