 # abbreviation in while loop (Gauss version 6)

I am now working on a paper which used Gauss version 6. There are some lines in de code that I  don't understand:

question 1: what does 'ge' mean?

i=rows(Data); do while i ge 2;
t=DataCol+1;
Data[i,t] = (Data[i,t]-Data[i-1,t])/100; t=t+1;
i=i-1; endo;

question 2: what does 'le' mean?

i=1;
do while i le lags;
xx = xx~lagn(x,-(lags-i));
i=i+1;
endo;

question 3: Are there any other abbreviations for:

• great than
• great than equal to
• smaller than
• smaller than equal to

I would really appreciate your help.

You are correct that `ge` means greater than or equal and `le` means less than or equal. These operators still work in the current version of GAUSS as they did in GAUSS 6.

However, we now recommend the use of >= and <=. aptech
