Dear Elia,

thank you very much for your bug report. You are using version 0.7.9 which is
quite old. I tried your syntax in the current version 0.10.2 and it produces a correct error

My recommendation is to use a current version of pspp. You are using linux, so you
could compile it yourself or you upgrade your distribution. On Ubuntu you could
use Adam Zammits PPA


On Debian you could use the pspp backport for wheezy.

Dear Respondent,

I encountered the following crash:

You have discovered a bug in PSPP.  Please report this
to address@hidden.  Please include this entire

For the best chance at having the bug fixed, also
include the syntax file that triggered it and a sample

The syntax file is:

(/home/ilmari/src)cat crash.pspp 
   /VARIABLES=conm A40.

In fact, the file phase1.csv did not exist on my disk so the code would not work. But it should give an error message instead of crashing.
