     Just wanted to thank you guys for hard work. Noticed that extended
     labels are now supported. <br>
     I also wanted to ask you how are unicode characters handled via text
     file import data mechanism? We have PHP code that will produce ASCII
     file then we load it up with PSPP and save into the SPSS binary mode.
     This far we haven't been able to get the unicode sets to work.<br>

String data input in  PSPP is independent of any character set
encoding, at least so far as DATA LIST is concerned.  If you use a
syntax like:

DATA LIST LIST /s (a25).
String in any encoding

SAVE OUTFILE='myfile.sav'.

Then myfile.sav will contain your string data verbatim; the character
encoding doesn't matter.  I don't think it's currently possible to
create variable names with non-ascii characters.

Hope this helps.

Please don't send email in HTML.  It is hard to read them.
