B.5 Machine Integer Info Record

The integer info record, if present, has the following format:

     /* Header. */
     int32               rec_type;
     int32               subtype;
     int32               size;
     int32               count;
     /* Data. */
     int32               version_major;
     int32               version_minor;
     int32               version_revision;
     int32               machine_code;
     int32               floating_point_rep;
     int32               compression_code;
     int32               endianness;
     int32               character_code;
int32 rec_type;
Record type. Always set to 7.
int32 subtype;
Record subtype. Always set to 3.
int32 size;
Size of each piece of data in the data part, in bytes. Always set to 4.
int32 count;
Number of pieces of data in the data part. Always set to 8.
int32 version_major;
PSPP major version number. In version x.y.z, this is x.
int32 version_minor;
PSPP minor version number. In version x.y.z, this is y.
int32 version_revision;
PSPP version revision number. In version x.y.z, this is z.
int32 machine_code;
Machine code. PSPP always set this field to value to -1, but other values may appear.
int32 floating_point_rep;
Floating point representation code. For IEEE 754 systems this is 1. IBM 370 sets this to 2, and DEC VAX E to 3.
int32 compression_code;
Compression code. Always set to 1.
int32 endianness;
Machine endianness. 1 indicates big-endian, 2 indicates little-endian.
int32 character_code;
Character code. 1 indicates EBCDIC, 2 indicates 7-bit ASCII, 3 indicates 8-bit ASCII, 4 indicates DEC Kanji. Windows code page numbers are also valid.
