On the documentation of pspp FREQUENCIES I didn't see any mention to the "ORDER" option. What did you try to make with "/ORDER=ANALYSIS"?

I tried to run following statement on the attached .sav file:

FREQUENCIES VARIABLES=Etnity PovertySub b12sup EducationHalf MariStatus Status /ORDER=ANALYSIS.

And got following syntax error:

/home/arie/psppire/b12.sps:2: syntax error: Syntax error expecting end of command at `ORDER'.

The command works perfectly under SPSS 16 though.
