There are some tips on how to get missing features implemented here:

Thanks for replying John.
Actually, what I want is the /ORIGIN command (force model to go through origin; i.e. no const term).
I can't fake it by adding a dummy variable with all cases set to zero for three reasons:
1) PSPP does not support weighted multiple linear regression, so adding a single dummy variable to a dataset which already contains hundreds of data points would not force the model's Y intercept to be zero
2) Without weighting, it would be necessary to add hundreds (if not thousands) of dummy data points to force the model's Y intercept to be zero.???? This would be unwieldy.
3) Adding hundreds (or thousands) of dummy data points would skew other statistical measures I am interested in.
The following free statistics programs all support zero Y-intercept (no const term) multiple linear regression models:
gretl
R
Octave
Tanagra
ASP
MicrOsiris
LibreOffice Calc
So why don't I just use one of them instead??? Well, I have and I do.?? But I have several applications where I want to use PSPP; for example when working with students with prior exposure to SPSS.

Ether,
I'm not an expert on linear regression, but I think you are looking for the /NOORIGIN
subcommand which unfortunately at the moment PSPP doesn't have.
If this is important to you, file a "wishlist" bug and we'll ses what we can do.
In the mean time, you can "fake it" by adding a dummy variable with all cases set
to zero.
