Scatterplot y vs. x

Hi PSPP users


The title of the scatterplot says "Scatterplot y vs. x".  Now there is a debate about what y vs. x actually means. In my opinion it means that y is on the ordinate (vertical axis) and x on the abscissa (horizontal). But on the net there are opinions where "y vs. x"  means that x is on the ordinate. This is the present implementation in PSPP.


Note that the PSPP command to get x on the abscissa is "graph /scatterplot= x with y." The title of the scatterplot will be "Scatterplot x vs. y".


Any opinion on this?
