Obtaining GNU PSPP

PSPP is GNU software. You can obtain it the same way as with any GNU software. PSPP should work on most modern computers and most operating systems. Systems which have been known to work include: GNU/Hurd, GNU/Linux, Darwin (Mac OS X), OpenBSD, NetBSD, FreeBSD, and Windows.


We do not distribute precompiled binaries of PSPP, but many operating systems come with them, though not always the most recent version. Below is a list of some PSPP binaries for some operating systems. Because the PSPP developers have not prepared these binaries, we cannot in general vouch for them.


If you want to compile and install PSPP yourself, you can get the source code from http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/pspp. Should this link be unavailable or unreasonably slow, please select a local mirror site. Once you have downloaded the tarball, refer to the INSTALL file for installation instructions.

Development Versions

PSPP is under continual improvement. You can get development versions if you are interested to see what the developers are working on. Development versions have undergone less testing than released versions.

You can fetch the latest development sources from the Savannah GIT repository. The installation procedure is more complex than for released versions, so we recommend this only for developers.

Automated builds of the development versions are performed typically every day.
