DISPLAY displays information about the active dataset. A variety of different forms of information can be requested.

The following keywords primarily cause information about variables to be displayed. With these keywords, by default information is displayed about all variable in the active dataset, in the order that variables occur in the active dataset dictionary. The SORTED keyword causes output to be sorted alphabetically by variable name. The VARIABLES subcommand limits output to the specified variables.

NAMES
The variables' names are displayed.
INDEX
The variables' names are displayed along with a value describing their position within the active dataset dictionary.
LABELS
Variable names, positions, and variable labels are displayed.
VARIABLES
Variable names, positions, print and write formats, and missing values are displayed.
DICTIONARY
Variable names, positions, print and write formats, missing values, variable labels, and value labels are displayed.
SCRATCH
Variable names are displayed, for scratch variables only (see Scratch Variables).
ATTRIBUTES
@ATTRIBUTES
Datafile and variable attributes are displayed. The first form of the command omits those attributes whose names begin with @ or $@. In the second for, all datafile and variable attributes are displayed.

With the VECTOR keyword, DISPLAY lists all the currently declared vectors. If the SORTED keyword is given, the vectors are listed in alphabetical order; otherwise, they are listed in textual order of definition within the pspp syntax file.
