Examples
  1.           DATA LIST TABLE /NAME 1-10 (A) INFO1 TO INFO3 12-17 (1).
              
              BEGIN DATA.
              John Smith 102311
              Bob Arnold 122015
              Bill Yates  918 6
              END DATA.
    

    Defines the following variables:

    The BEGIN DATA/END DATA commands cause three cases to be defined:

              Case   NAME         INFO1   INFO2   INFO3
                 1   John Smith     10      23      11
                 2   Bob Arnold     12      20      15
                 3   Bill Yates      9      18       6
    

    The TABLE keyword causes pspp to print out a table describing the four variables defined.

                      /ID 1-5 NAME 7-36 (A) SURNAME 38-67 (A) MINITIAL 69 (A)
