Time series items are accessed in stk_print by two methods:
1. /ml “<.keyset1> [; <.keyset 2>…]”
Individual items are specified. The maximum length of the command line limits the number of items that can be specified with this option.
2. /mf item.file
An input text file is supplied which contains one row per selection, each with <.keyset>.
Keyset is optional and is used with portfolios and groups. If not given, the item’s default is assumed. It can take the form of a list (#[,#[-#]]...) or an asterisk.
Both /ml and /mf methods can be used at the same time. The order they appear in the request determines the order in the output. In both cases, item names are not case sensitive.
