The variable display parameter record, if present, has the following format:
/* Header. */ int32 rec_type; int32 subtype; int32 size; int32 count; /* Repeated
counttimes. */ int32 measure; int32 width; /* Not always present. */ int32 alignment;
int32. Always set to 4.
The remaining members are repeated
count times, in the same
order as the variable records. No element corresponds to variable
records that continue long string variables. The meanings of these
members are as follows:
SPSS 14 sometimes writes a
measure of 0. PSPP interprets this
as nominal scale.
This field is present if count is 3 times the number of
variables in the dictionary. It is omitted if count is 2 times
the number of variables.
