file1.rft ( fixed ascii data file)?? Is there a good way to do this through a 
shell script from Linux?

If test1.sps does not already contain a SAVE command then you will need to add 
For example:

$ echo SAVE OUTFILE=\"myfile.sav\". >> test1.sps
$ pspp test1.sps

(PSPP is largely operating system agnostic, so this should work on GNU/Linux 
and any platform)
