PSPP-BUG: PSPP 0.7.9 syntax run error

Dear PSPP developer

Thank you for your contribution and commitment for computational statistics.
I often use SPSS in windows, R and PSPP in linux. There is 'foreign' package within in R, which is used for importing SPSS file(.sav) or exporting to SPSS. In foreign, there is a function called write.foreign which is for exporting dataset to SPSS and others.

As you know, using syntax file for importing data is often used. I tested the importing skill for PSPP and SPSS together. SPSS v.21 (in windows) imports dataset without error, while PSPP v.0.7.9 (in ubuntu, with .deb binary) occurs an error. I looked into the syntax file(.sps) and data file(.txt), which I attached to this message. I think that the error in PSPP was caused by the last comma(,) in every line in the text file, by which a missing value takes a row automatically.

Thank you for your listening.

best wishes,

SHIN Jong-Hwa
