5.1.2 Listing the data

Once the data has been entered, you could type

     PSPP> list /format=numbered.

to list the data. The optional text ‘/format=numbered’ requests the case numbers to be shown along with the data. It should show the following output:

     Case#     forename   height
     ----- ------------ --------
         1 Ahmed          188.00
         2 Bertram        167.00
         3 Catherine      134.23
         4 David          109.10

Note that the numeric variable height is displayed to 2 decimal places, because the format for that variable is ‘F8.2’. For a complete description of the LIST command, see LIST.
