Loading Initial and Historical Value Data

Is there are way in dynare to load initial values or historical values from a matlab database much like you can load parameter values and use the “set_param_value” function? My sense is no from looking through the documentation and previous discussions, but I wanted to ask in case this feature has been added to the software recently.

Thanks,
Daniel

In which context, i.e. for which command?

for the histval or initval block of code in the .mod file.

rather than

initval;
y = log(30)
end;

I want to do something like

initval;
y = X;
end;

where X is a value stored in a matlab database corresponding to the actual level of output (GDP) in the data.

Thanks for your help.
