pspp-dump-sav is a command-line utility accompanying
PSPP. It reads one or more SPSS system files and prints their
contents. The output format is useful for debugging system file
readers and writers and for discovering how to interpret unknown or
poorly understood records. End users may find the output useful for
providing the PSPP developers information about system files that PSPP
does not accurately read.
