frds can be used via a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a Command Line Interface (CLI).


To start frds in GUI, open a terminal and enter:

$ python -m

A window similar to the one below should show up.

The configuration is default to the settings in the config.ini.



If you don't want to store your login data locally on your computer, you can leave them empty in the config.ini. Then each time using frds GUI you can enter your username and password manually.


Alternatively, run without GUI:

$ python -m

This will estimate all measures and save the results as STATA .dta file in the result folder.

Example Output

For example, below is a screenshot of the output for frds.measures.AccountingRestatement.
