PSPP is a command-line program for
statistical analysis of sampled data. It is intended as a free
replacement of the proprietary program, SPSS.
interprets commands in the SPSS language and produces output in two
forms: tables and charts, and tabular output
in ASCII, PostScript, or HTML format.
It already supports a large subset of SPSS's transformation
language. Its statistical procedure support is currently
limited, but increasing.
