Having the function mentioned by Mario would mean a big leap for PSPP. I
am an average linux user who sticks up with GUIs (where possible). Being
able to export the results to an excel (or OpenOffice)-readable format
would spare me a big amount of work.

I am saying that knowing that your capacities for development are
limited. Thanks for your work, the software is already great as is and I
hope it will keep developing.

Is there a wishlist to which one could add ideas?
