Ok, I get it.  Someone told you how poorly I programmed in "S".  Or how I burned my computer manuals after writing hilarious one liners in APL.   No, I'll not underwrite the ree-creation of NMDS or MDS, but with some gentle guidance from the list will attemtp to make an existing routine or two work as part of the PSPP system. 

Remember when SPSS only had a paperback thin book to tell you what it could do?

Dwight Hines, in Maine, after a long struggle remembering APL's name.

P.S.  z, the Mantel open source test for two matrices, might be good to add to PSPP, but it does not give much in the way of intermediate steps so the results are not as conforting as I'd like.

Not that I know of, but we have been looking into setting up an account
to take donations for coding. I haven't heard back from FSF since my
latest inquiry.
