INCLUDE [FILE=]’file_name’ [ENCODING=’encoding’].

INCLUDE causes the PSPP command processor to read an additional command file as if it were included bodily in the current command file. If errors are encountered in the included file, then command processing stops and no more commands are processed. Include files may be nested to any depth, up to the limit of available memory.

The INSERT command (see INSERT) is a more flexible alternative to INCLUDE. An INCLUDE command acts the same as INSERT with ERROR=STOP CD=NO SYNTAX=BATCH specified.

The optional ENCODING subcommand has the same meaning as with INSERT.
