Actually, it's a Perl module that I've done.   I did it by special
request of a third party.   I think it's mostly complete. Currently
it's sitting in a directory on my PC somewhere just waiting for me to
tidy it up a bit.

Integrating it into PSPP will require some (not too hard) changes to
the src/data tree.  One of the problems is that src/data depends on
libgsl --- but for a trivial reason --- it uses gsl_is_finite.  I
think we did this because the C99 isfinite function wasn't available
on BSD or something.  Unfortunately it's not yet part of gnulib

If this problem was addressed, and a few other small ones, then I
think there'd be no major issues integrating my module into
the core pspp source, if we want to do that.
