          RSiteSearch("EACF") led me to
"". In this note from Oct. 2004, Brian Ripley said the EACF did not exist but 'acf' and 'pacf' did. Moreover, he said that model selection using acf and pacf is "a rather old-fashioned idea. Just fit all the target models and compare their performance."

        What are you trying to do? If model time series, I suggest you follow Prof. Ripley's advice. If you are conducting research and you want to compare the EACF with something else, I doubt if it would be too hard to program in R (though I could neither recall nor find the formulae involved in the few minutes I spent just now looking). If you try to write an 'eacf' function and get stuck, please submit another post describing what you've tried and what does not seem to work (as suggested in the posting guide!

	  Hope this helps.
