SYSFILE INFO FILE=’file_name’ [ENCODING=’encoding’].
SYSFILE INFO reads the dictionary in an SPSS system file,
SPSS/PC+ system file, or SPSS portable file, and displays the
information in its dictionary.
Specify a file name or file handle.
SYSFILE INFO reads that
file and displays information on its dictionary.
PSPP automatically detects the encoding of string data in the file,
when possible. The character encoding of old SPSS system files cannot
always be guessed correctly, and SPSS/PC+ system files do not include
any indication of their encoding. Specify the
subcommand with an IANA character set name as its string
argument to override the default, or specify
to analyze and report possibly valid encodings for the system file.
ENCODING subcommand is a PSPP extension.
SYSFILE INFO does not affect the current active dataset.
