I just build and uploaded a version to pspp4windows on sourceforge. https://sourceforge.net/projects/pspp4windows/

In general all versions are published there first. If no serious bug reports are coming in some of these versions are mentioned on the pspp.awardspace.com site after a short time
.

And for all people who want to test, it looks pspp is hort for the next release. So testing is usefull.


Happy testing

histogram labels unreadable

Hi,

I want to get a histogram of a numerical variable v172 by each value of 
a nominal value COUNTRY and use the proc EXAMINE.
EXAMINE
EXAMINE
         VARIABLES=  v172  BY country
         /PLOT= HISTOGRAM.

The output on the screen (see capture attached) is cut after the name of 
the break variable so that you can't know which country is shown.
Also, the standard deviation shown to the right of the graphics is cut.

You have to export the output which is not a rapid way to visually 
control the distribution of the dependent variable.
Of course, you can first try if PSPP shows everything you need, then 
delete the variable label, and rerun.

But it would be helpful if everything were in place from the very 
beginning, for instance in putting the level of the break variable under 
the graphics on a second line.

histogram does not show all value of frequencies

Hi,

I graph the values of a frequency command with
FREQUENCIES V172/HIST.
The variables has 11 values, and only 10 are shown.

This appears to be a bug to me.

This are the data:

RE: Pspp-users Digest, Vol 118, Issue 20

I could not see the dots in scatterplots (using Windows 10). I noticed there were no scatterplots in the version I have installed on a laptop running Ubuntu (Kylin).

I would like to use PSPP in my teaching (instead of Excel), so all your efforts are very much appreciated.

Looking forward to the new release.

Thanks,
Ivan

anything pressing before releasing 0.9.0?

Does anyone want to nominate bugs that should be fixed before releasing
0.9.0?  John tells me that the GUI slowdown we'd seen for datasets with
large numbers of columns has now been fixed.  The DATASET commands still
do not work as in SPSS, but this is not a regression from previous
versions and it's a fairly involved fix so I'm deferring it.

If no one points out any serious problems then I'll plan to release
0.9.0 within the week.

Thanks,

Ben.

Re: Combining dataset files in PSPP

How is record 1 of the breastfeeding practices datafile related to record(s) in the socioeconomic factors and breastfeeding knowledge datafiles?  Is there a unique identifier?  If so, what is the name of the variable?

I'm trying to merge 3 different dataset files into a single dataset files. I'm conducting a research on factors affecting breastfeeding practices among nursing mothers in a community in Nigeria. So i made datasets for socioeconomic factors, breastfeeding knowledge, and factors affecting breastfeeding separately. I'm trying to merge them into one.

Getting PSPP compiled version with PostgreSQL support

I would like to obtain compiled a compiled version of PSPP with PostgreSQL support included for Windows.  Can anyone list a location and version number for this?  I currently run 0.9.0-g745ee3 on Windows. 

 

I would like a Linux version too, but it’s easier to build this from source.

 

Kind regards,

Phil

problem with running port pspp-devel

Hello,

I am no experienced user of terminal commands and so I am quite lost with Macports and the downloaded port PSPP-devel.

I managed to install PSPP on my MacOS 10.10. The last line of the installation reads: --->  No broken files found.    I believe, this is a good sign.

The content is there as well as a Unix executable PSPP. When I run it in the terminal I get the error message: Error: Error for opening the output file `pspp.jnl': Permission denied.  [original line in German: Fehler: Fehler beim Öffnen der Ausgabedatei `pspp.jnl': Permission denied]  

I did have hick-ups with installing the dependency Python because a .list-file already existed. Installation was aborted, but I could manually override this problem. Python got installed. I did not clean the port installation, though, because I forgot that. I am not sure whether that is meaningful information.

I would need help in overcoming this problem of running the program and also I would like to create an icon for my deck - does anybody have experience with that?

Any help from this community is very much appreciated!

Georg
