    Dear Professor Marron, I am using your matlab software ( I am not quite familiar with Matlab). My purpose is to use your program to smooth y based on the regression on x with the bandwidth choosen by the . In your matlab version 5 OR 7, which mat file should I use? I have tried the the gpfam in version 5, it then gives out the msmooth and xgrid. I am just wondering that how could I have a series of my Y variables? Thanks!

    Sorry for the slow reply. I only recently realized this comment operation is even available. About your questions: the function gpfam is quite old, and no longer recommended. For simple scatterplot smoothing, the function nprSM is now recommended.
