importing csv files in linux pspp .8.1

Good morning. I am trying to import csv data through psppire. The data 
file as a 'header' line with preferred variable names. psppire 
identifies the header line as line 0 and asks where the data starts. 
psppire correctly identifies the format of the body of data elements. If 
line 0 is chosen as the start psppire reports data error on the header 
line. If line 1 is chosen as the data start psppire proceeds. However in 
neither case does psppire recognize the header line as the variable 
identifier line. psppire proceeds to name the variables as var001, 
var002, ... Is there a way to either modify the input file replace the 
variable names automatically. The objective is to use the first line as 
the source of the variable names.

Thanks in advance for your help, Dan

NCDF functions

Dear PSPP Users,
 
I'm trying to calculate non-central distributions using the function
 
COMPUTE a = NCDF.T(0.2, 3, 1).
EXECUTE.
 
as documented in the manual. However, I get an error message that the function has not been implemented. The central distribution function works fine. Am I doing something wrong?
 
I am running release 0.8.3 on Windows 7.
 
Bob

PSPP freezes when I try to change the width of the columns in the variables window

I have installed PSPP (MSWindows build) in two computers, one with Windows XP and the other with Windows 7, and in both of them (most of the times, but not always) the PSPP freezes when I try to change the width of the columns in the variables window.

Thank you in advance!

C subroutine support

I'm looking into PSPP for linux, and since I'm going to be migrating
from a Windows system running Quantum I was wondering if someone with
experience could tell me if PSPP supports C subroutines. I should
probably note that I'll be using the command line interface mostly.

Re: PSPP Question (Landon Denkler)

Hello GNU,



I am an analyst at Gragg Advertising and a graduate student at the
University of Missouri-Kansas City.  All of my work data is in Excel form,
but I want to use PSPP to statistically analyze the results using the
lessons I've garnered from my coursework.  However, every time I try to
open an Excel document in PSPP it will only open it in the syntax window
instead of the graphic interface data and variable windows.  I don't know
how to use the syntax interface but would really like to use the graphic
interface to analyze this data.



Can you help me with this please?

You can save your excell spreadsheets as ods file, even by default, or export it to a .csv file. Both can be read with the PSPP GUI.

Have fun

Can PSPP be used in an office by multiple users simultaneously?

Can PSPP be used in an office by multiple users simultaneously? We are now using SPSS, but have a limited license. Therefore, it is only possible for one person in the office to use SPSS at a time. Does this problem occur for PSPP too?

Please reply as soon as possible. Thank you!

running syntax file from ui vs running syntax file from command prompt

Hi there,

I am trying to run a utf-8 syntax script in PSPP 0.8.2 on win7 64bit, but I think there is a problem when I run the a syntax file from the command line:
 --syntax-encoding as a start param does not seem to work:

I have tried:

"C:\Program Files\PSPP\bin\pspp.exe" file.sps -b -o log.txt
--syntax-encoding=UTF-8
"C:\Program Files\PSPP\bin\pspp.exe" file.sps -b -o log.txt --syntax-encoding=utf-8
"C:\Program Files\PSPP\bin\pspp.exe" file.sps -b -o log.txt --syntax-encoding=UTF8
"C:\Program Files\PSPP\bin\pspp.exe" file.sps -b -o log.txt
--syntax-encoding="UTF-8"
"C:\Program Files\PSPP\bin\pspp.exe" --syntax-encoding="UTF-8" file.sps -b -o log.txt

All with no success - my Thai characters get garbled. However, when I load the script through the gui (and select UTF-8 from the dialog) it works perfectly. So I think this command line param just doesn't work.

Thanks,

Kees

Importing large file to PSPP hangs

I have a database in csv format with 11 million cases (rows) and 10
variables (columns), the file is 500 MB alfa-numeric. I can pass the
first steps of the import process, but when I finally ask for import
the process hangs, without any notice. I understand PSPP is capable to
manage such files (even larger). Any hint?

I am using PSPP 0.8.2 in Windows 7 with 2 GB Ram.

Regards, Roberto.
