FILE TYPE doesn't work, period. I never finished the implementation. This is why it is not documented.

I have changed FILE TYPE to UNIMPL for 0.4.0.

The attached file results in this error message:

error: END FILE TYPE: This command may only appear within a FILE

which is wrong.

Also, the pspp manual does not document FILE TYPE / END FILE TYPE
