SPSS documentation says that SHOW ENVIRONMENT should show environment variables. It also says, vaguely, that it shows other things. I couldn't find example output online. I pushed a change to make it show environment variables.

You can use SHOW SYSTEM to show the other things you're looking for, I think.

ENVIRONMENT information also doesn’t appear when the SHOW ALL command is run.


I noticed this when I ran some code that starts with SHOW VERSION ENVIRONMENT.  Thus it also doesn’t work in combination with other SHOW options.


A long time ago, it used to say something like SHOW: ENVIRONMENT is amd64-unknown-freebsd8.2 or similar, depending on the operating system used.


Considering this is good information for bug reports, it would be nice if it would work as the documentation shows.
