Follow-up Comment #2, bug #24534 (project pspp):

This is interesting.

Psppire uses batch mode, because the syntax window isn't interactive in the
sense that the pspp terminal is.  In psppire, you type in the syntax, then
select Run->All/Selection/To End ...
which executes the code. In the terminal, the code is automatically executed
whenever the end of a command is encountered.

As I understand it, the reason for interactive mode, is that end of command
can be ambiguous in batch mode.

So to me, it makes more sense to have batch mode  in psppire, or else, change
the user interface to make it truly interactive.
