In 2012, Eren Ocakverdi, Head of Analytical Modeling & Macroeconomic Research, Yapi Kredit Invest (TURKEY) has written an EVIEWS add-in which is available from http://www.eviews.com/cgi/ai_download.cgi?ID=tarcoint.aipz.
Note that the add-in is not as flexible as the original program. In particular, the threshold is assumed to be zero when this is often not the case. Still it is an extremely easy and useful quick test procedure.

From Michael Parkin and Robin Bade, MACROECONOMICS: Canada in the Global economic Environment, Eighth Edition (Toronto: Pearson, 2013)
Over my career I have done research in econometrics (time series analysis) while in recent years I have devoted more attention to monetary policy, central banking issues, and finance issues. I have also always been interested in how forecasts are made and change over time either because of inherent biases of forecasters or because of the policy regime in which the forecasts are prepared. I retain an abiding interest in how econometric techniques can be used to illuminate policy problems. I also have a great interest in examples and illustrations from economic history.
Previous and some ongoing papers of mine can be downloaded from several locations. They include:
"The Transmission of Financial Shocks on a Global Scale: How Important Are They?", with G-C. Beaino and D. Lombardi, Emerging Market Finance and Trade (2019). The button to the right contains the raw data as well as an illustration of the Excel spreadsheet used with the GVAR Toolbox (version 2.0, in 2016).
The GVAR toolbox requires Matlab.
"Quantifying the Impact of the November 2014 Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect", International Review of Economics and Finance 58 (September 2018): 156-163.
