     I have done a questionnaire for my Bachelor thesis with the German 
provider There, I got two documents as you can find attached. I 
downloaded the program PSPP as I know that this is a nice alternative to SPSS. 
Normally, one could import the documents to have a nice overview in PSPP 
without typing everything in.
     When I am importing the .csv file, there is an error which says that the 
document contents a row which is longer than 16384 bytes. 

     When I am importing the syntax.sps file, VAR001 includes all the data of 
the document, but I cannot do anything to seperate it into different variables.

Indeed, these files are wierd.  They seem to use a single CR as a line 
separator.  I've never seen a file like that before - effectively both files 
contain only one line.

I used sed to change all CRs into LFs and then imported it using PSPPs 
File|Import option.
Then it seemed to go ok, but there are a number of instances where the csv file 
has strings where numbers are expected. seem to be generating very off output.
