Update of bug #59008 (project pspp):

                Severity:             5 - Average => 3 - Ordinary           
                  Status:                    None => Wont Fix               


Follow-up Comment #2:

There is no general solution to this problem.

A naive work-around is to start pspp with the --syntax-encoding= option (see
section 3.1 of the manual).  However this cannot work in the general case. 
Consider what you would do in the example where you had:

ADD FILE /FILE='/file/name/encoded/in/iso-8859-1.sav'

Either one or other of the files it would fail to resove.

The problem is, if you use wierd characters in your file names, pspp cannot
know what you actually meant when you typed it.  My advice therefore is to
avoid non-ascii characters in your paths.
