My idea behind was that the rc file could be used to change to defaults of psppire. It would be possible to create a link in the MSWindows build so people can edit this file with notepad in a more or less userfriendly way without the need of programming a configuration part.

For PSPP I don think it makes sense as people who use the commandline version will be able to include the settings in there setup.
Have fun

The GUI doesn't run an rc file.

It's just named "rc".  PSPP searches $HOME (the value of the environment
variable HOME) and the current directory.  If there's a better default
for Windows, we can search that too.
