Thanks, you're exactly right; I didn't realize pspp-convert was what I needed.

I don't think he knew to look for the pspp-convert program.

In case that wasn't enough: to decrypt an encrypted file "encrypted.sav"

        pspp-convert encrypted.sav plaintext.sav

and then type the password when prompted.
