Follow-up Comment #2, bug #47253 (project pspp):

Hi Ben,

thanks for looking into this. I do not have SPSS, so I cannot try and compare
the behavior. The syntax you provided in comment #1 works for me, i.e. the 3,5
are read in without error message.

But I found the following:


which says:

Note: For default numeric (F) format and scientific notation (E) format, the
decimal indicator of the input data must match the IBM® SPSS® Statistics
locale decimal indicator (period or comma). Use SHOW DECIMAL to display the
current decimal indicator and SET DECIMAL to set the decimal indicator. (Comma
and Dollar formats only recognize a period as the decimal indicator, and Dot
format only recognizes the comma as the decimal indicator.)

So from my understanding the DOT and COMMA formats define the decimal
indicator already in the syntax, while the default notation uses the default
indicator set by the locale or command. The DOT syntax would otherwise make no
sense, right?

But maybe somebody with SPSS could try this.
