It certainly couldn't do any harm to have a lot more example files in the
distribution.  That way, when somebody asks "how do I do X?" or claims
"feature Y doesn't work", then we can point them to an appropriate example

     As more and more users seem to use a pre-build PSPP package I think it

     What about providing a syntax file in the examples which can be used
     for testing an installed package? As it is now possible to start a
     syntax file by clicking on it, it must be possible for almost all
     users to run it.
     I was thinking about a syntax file with instructions how to run it
     etc. as comment in the top followed by commands. It would also be
     helpfull if there is a command to display the PSPP version and the
     OSversion after that creating a reasonable file and do some statistics
     With the output of such a syntax file it would be much easier to
     reproduce problems or finding out that it is not the installation.
     To me it looks as something the community can help with.
     Your thoughts about this?
     Have fun
