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.
