     Again, this is all unfamiliar territory for me, but my idea would be to use
     the benefits of _unifying_ bindings to whichever dynamic language comes to
     mind. It may save some time, and it may even help to get some kind of

     interface for language <xyz>.
     SWIG would add another dependency, of course...

I'm not intimately familiar with swig nor with python,  but I'm sure
it would be possible to build such an interface.
Spss has recently come up with its own Python interface, so it would
make sense to make the two compatible.

Guido Gay sent me this Url It  is
a Perl program which can apparently read PSPP/SPSS files.  It may be
of interest to you.
