This file is odd.  It doesn't look like it was written by SPSS (or
PSPP), even though the file header claims so ("Written by SPSS"),
because it doesn't include any of the records that SPSS (and PSPP)
includes in every file that it writes.  Do you know what program wrote
this file?

The actual problem with the file is that it specifies numeric formats
such as F41.0 and F60.0 when, as the SPSS manual states, the maximum
width of the F format is 40.  That is what the warnings that you see are
pointing out.

The warnings should be harmless; you can ignore them.

To anyone with SPSS: does SPSS itself read this file without warnings?
If so, then I will make PSPP do so.
