16.14 HOST

HOST COMMAND=[’command’...].

HOST suspends the current PSPP session and temporarily returns control to the operating system. This command cannot be used if the SAFER (see SET) setting is active.

If the COMMAND subcommand is specified, as a sequence of shell commands as quoted strings within square brackets, then PSPP executes them together in a single subshell.

If no subcommands are specified, then PSPP invokes an interactive subshell.
