Please note that TSERIES is NOT a PC package. It is a standard
FORTRAN program, originally (around 1978) written for large
computers.  As far as I know (I have not tried myself), however,
TSERIES will not run on MS/DOS systems without major changes (which
I have never attempted to implement).

TSERIES was designed for batch-type operation where one builds a
file of commands and data.  This file is executed and output is
directed to another file which read or edited, as desired.  TSERIES
has only ``printer-type'' graphics (crude by today's standards, but
the plots were useful) and uses up to 132 columns in its output
stream (the size of the paper in the old days!).

The computing algorithms in TSERIES were state of the art in 1978,
but are not today! I would stongly suggest using a more modern
computer package with these capabilities like SAS or Splus or other
packages aimes at analysis of time series or enconometric data. The
algorithms in TSERIES have, since about 1981, also been implemented
in MINITAB.

There is a User's manual for TSERIES, but it is not available here.
Someday I might be able to get someone to scan in a copy and make a
pdf file.

I cannot answer any questions about TSERIES. I have not looked at the
code in almost 20 years!
