I am working with wavelets and found nearly no problems so far with Guy
Nason's WaveThresh which is available from the statlib archive
( The author has developed a lot of
new stuff which will be available in the next release (ask Guy for
details). I remember that I made two changes when I used it for the first
time with R-0.12, but I am not sure if they are still necessary.

1) Delete the body of the maybe.load-function (one if-clause) and include
the dyn.load-command in your ".First"-function.

2) In "plot.wd": Delete the "sub"-argument which is passed to the
plot-function in line 19 of the body.  

I haven't tried all WaveThresh functions, but I don't think there will
occur many problems.
