I'm post-coding open-ended questions directly on the PSPP data screen; however, the outcome has been quite frustrating so far.
I'm using PSPP 0.7.8 under Ubuntu 10.10 (I tried also under Fedora 16 with the same results)
Find attached a sample *.sav file on which I'm having big problems while using ctrl-c ctrl-v to copy values from one cell to another. These are some odd behaviors I have suffered using the ctrl-c, ctrl-v sequence.
1. The value in a numeric column next to a string gets wiped off when I replace the value of the later .
2. Some weird, apparently rand. om values appear in an active numeric cell as well as in the contiguous rows and columns
3. Values in a numeric column were replaced by a sequence of numbers overwriting previous
4. After copying values to a string cell the whole Ubuntu (or Fedora) system froze; I waited for 10 minutes then "unplugged" the machine.
These behaviour appeared consistently some 8 times after I used the ctrl-c & ctrl-v sequence.
Can't tell you more. Hope you can replicate my problem.
