error message In French lacking character

Hi,
The error message no 21 lacks a character. It reads
.21 Attention le tableau croisé ne contient aucune observation on-manquante.
It should read:
.21 Attention le tableau croisé ne contient aucune observation 
non-manquante.

Cheers

Procedure for collapsing a continuous variable into groups

Hello, I'm really new in using PSPP and for that reason I want to excuse myself if some of my questions seem to be stupid.
I want to show my students how they could collapse height-variables into groups. I know how to do this in SPSS by using "Visual Binning" in "Transformation" but I would like to show them to do most data analysis in PSPP. Is there a tool in PSPP too?

Kind regards,
Guenter

Need help installing PSPP on my laptop

Hi PSPP users,

I'm trying to install PSPP on my laptop and am not sure how to proceed, which files I need, and what application to use to open them.

I've gone to the source code page at http://ftp.wayne.edu/gnu/pspp/ and see that the most recent files are pspp-0.8.4.tar.gz and pspp-0.8.4.tar.gz.sig, both dated September 27, 2014. I'm assuming those two files are the ones I need but after I've downloaded them, what do I do from there?

When I click on the files, my system asks what application I should use to open a *.gz file or a *.gz.sig file. This is where I'm getting confused.

Can someone help me with this?

Thanks!

Julie Worwa

graph output , png images

Hi,

Is there any way to treat the graph output ? The current graphs are 
helpful for analysis - and this is already really helpful - but you 
can't publish them.
I would like to change scales, titles, the numbering format.
Do you do this, and if so, how ?

Regards,
ftr

SPSS/PC+ files now supported

great !, I had given up for dead the website for a long time. I'm glad 
the website to translate all native SPSS formats to plain text.

Following the line in the preservation of data, is it possible that the 
web page display data file using the "DISPLAY DICTIONARY" command as 
another utility?

Cheers

Re: Re: Re: PSPP - 5-11-2014 (Ben Pfaff)


I only tried the syntax with the demo.sav file from the original report.
I don't know, off-hand, whether address is numeric in that file.

I'd appreciate a backtrace when you have time for it.

Thanks,

Ben.

Unfortunately MSWindows won't give a backtrace. The only errortext I get is:

This applications has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information. 

What I did to reproduce the error:
- Create a datafile with the variable  "address" and everything default (=numeric)
- Run the posted command.

Have fun

PSPP - 5-11-2014

Dear Sir/Madam,

 

I have a problem trying to run the following syntax relating to the attached demo.sav file (64 bit – 5.11.2014):

FREQUENCIES

               /VARIABLES= address

               /FORMAT=AVALUE TABLE

               /STATISTICS=DEFAULT MODE MEDIAN

               /HISTOGRAM=NORMAL

               /PERCENTILES= 25 50 75.

 

I get the following Runtime Assertion:

 

 

 

Running the following similar syntax which was ok in 25.4.2014 version, gives an error message as well:

 

FREQUENCIES

               /VARIABLES= address

               /FORMAT=AVALUE TABLE

               /STATISTICS=DEFAULT MODE MEDIAN

               /HISTOGRAM=NORMAL

               /PERCENTILES= 25,50,75.

 

I would be grateful if you can help me.   

 

With best wishes,

Yaron Ghilay

Attachment (demo.sav): application/x-spss-sav, 401 KiB

SPSS/PC+ files now supported

I added support for reading SPSS/PC+ files to PSPP last night.  If you
have any of those files (from the SPSS/PC+ program from the 1980s) then
you should be able to read them now.

There is no support for writing these files.  There is no point since
SPSS/PC+ is thoroughly obsolete.

The translator at http://pspp.benpfaff.org/ also supports SPSS/PC+ files
now.

MEANS TABLE output

Hi,

I just discovered which GREAT progress this software made over the 
years. Thanks very much for that to the contributors!

I want to clarify this before sending bug reports: In the archive of 
this list I found the thread with the same subject from July 2014. I 
think that the implementation of MEANS TABLES is buggy. Particularly the 
meaning of "MEANS TABLES = a by b by c" seems mixed up with "MEANS 
TABLES = a by b c".

Given this example, which is slightly adjusted from the manual one's 
(the manual states that each of the three subcommands produces only one 
table):

get file = 'C:\Programme\PSPP\share\pspp\examples\hotel.sav' .
MEANS TABLES =
     v1 v2 v3 BY v4 /
     v1 v2 BY v4 v5 /
     v1 BY v4 BY v5 .

The first subcommand produces two tables, both grouped in three blocks 
v1 v2 v3. The first one has results for single values of v1, v2, v3, the 
second one has totals. These are the same numbers as in SPSS, but SPSS 
arranges them in one table and has v1, v2, v3 as columns and mean, 
count, stddev as rows.

The second subcommand also produces two tables, also both grouped in two 
blocks v1 v2, also one for details and one for totals (no subtotals). 
The details are for single values of v4 and v5 combined, I think this is 
what the manual describes "a categorical variable formed by the 
combination of y and z", but which references the _third_ subcommand.
In SPSS the _third_ subcommand produces one table with the same detail 
numbers, again with total and subtotals.

The third subcommand produces three tables, ungrouped, two for details 
and one for total. In SPSS the _second_ subcommand produces two tables 
with the same numbers.

Using psppire.exe 0.8.4-g012d99, 64 bit from sourceforge in Windows 8.
Using SPSS for Windows Release 8.0.0 (11 May 1998) in Windows 
2000/Oracle VM Virtualbox. :-) :-(
