### Description
High level Matlab API that interacts with the Wharton Reasearch Data Services (WRDS) Unix server and its SAS data sets through SSH2.
### Description
First, run `wrds_install()` or add all relevant paths manually. You are ready to use `wrds()`.
### Requirements
* An account with WRDS of the type that admits SSH connections (PhD or above).
See WRDS's [account types](http://wrds-web.wharton.upenn.edu/wrds/support/Additional%20Support/Account%20Types.cfm) for details.
* [Java enabled](http://www.mathworks.co.uk/help/matlab/ref/usejava.html)

### Example

w = wrds('olegkoma','forgiveMeIfIDontTellYou');
w.cmd('echo "Hello World!"')

Download the [CRSPA/MSI dataset](http://wrds-web.wharton.upenn.edu/wrds/tools/variable.cfm?library_id=137&file_id=67079)

w.getDataset('CRSPA.MSI')

NOTE: check that your institution is subscribed to the CRSPA database through https://wrds-web.wharton.upenn.edu/wrds/mywrds/subscriptions.cfm, or query

w.getDatasetInfo('CRSPA.MSI')

if it comes back empty, you probably do not have access to that database.
