Old mainframe save file

Will PSPP read save files originally created on a mainframe?  (about 25 years ago). I have one that seems to comply with the file format as documented by Ben. The text fields are EBCDIC of course. Data is big-endian. The first record starts with $FL2 as prescribed. Next with 00002, etc.
Docs seem to imply endian-ness will be dealt with properly.
But PSPP v7.8 gives an error opening the file.  Any thoughts?  Thanks.

Best Regards,

Chris Muller
