Hi everybody,

I saw this behaviour with my files, too, and thought it was a feature not a bug :) I use PSPP for scripting mainly so I quickly came up with a workaround for it:

prompt$ pspp -o output_test_2.dic -O width=1000 <<END
    get file='output_test_2.sav'
    display dictionary


...which produces expected one-line-per-a-variable format.

Best regards,

Creating some test files, succeed in obtaining some information that may be useful.

When creating long labels in SPSS, it merely permitting with a length of 120 characters. Moreover, the problem generated on the output window PSPP is generated when a label is more than 120 characters.

However, to write labels greater than 120 characters PSPP is an advantage over SPSS.
I tested creating PSPP files with long labels and these are not lost when you modify the file with SPSS (unless you change that particular tag).

I hope it will be useful
