The limit on cases analyzed by a procedure, set by the N OF CASES command (see N OF CASES in PSPP Users Guide), is stored as part of the dictionary. The dictionary does not, on the other hand, play any role in enforcing the case limit (a job done by data analysis framework code).
A case limit of 0 means that the number of cases is not limited.
These functions are rarely useful, because the data analysis framework automatically excludes from analysis any cases beyond the limit.
Returns the current case limit for dict.
Sets dict’s case limit to limit.
