Re: Missing sub commands

Dear Sirs,

I am using release no. 0.8.4-g5ce6b1

It is running on Windows 7 on a 64 bit computer.

I am trying to examine the difference in the score range between two groups - male and female in the sample. The statistics are calculated, but there is no prompt to choose a chart type. The 'PLOT' command is missing from the sub commands. Do I have the latest version?

Many thanks

     I guess that no one has implemented these yet.

In fact, these have been implemented for some years now, so another possibility is that Terence is
using a very old version of PSPP.   Alternatively, it could be simply that he is using it wrong.
A third possibility is that he has discovered an unusual bug which manifests itself only under
the particular circumstances in which he is using it.

Sadly he hasn't given us an example, nor has he said which version he is using.  So we don't know.
