"filter_$" variable is nominal.

SPSS use this syntax, then creating it and filter by it:

COMPUTE filter_$=(Lytis = "v").
VARIABLE LABELS filter_$ 'Lytis = "v" (FILTER)'.
VALUE LABELS filter_$ 0 'Not Selected' 1 'Selected'.
FORMATS filter_$ (f1.0).
FILTER BY filter_$.

SPSS use this syntax, then coping selected variables to new dataset:

SELECT IF (Lytis = "m").

And near "If..." button, you can put expression for filter.

SPSS also has option to output/copy selected cases to new dataset.

Then selecting option "If condition is satisfied" in SPSS,
it opens similar dialog as in "Compute variable" dialog to compute "filter_$" variable, which has label of entered expression. PSPP could also create "filter_$" variable.

This button has existed for a long time, but its visibility is
turned off, because I haven't ever implemented the associated dialog.  Feel free to implement it and hook it in as appropriate.

I'm trying to fix this, but seems like some of it was already made. On psppire.ui there is an "If condition is satisfied", but it doesn't appears on psppire.

Did you start to fix it John?

As I recall, the Compute dialog has a similar button, which opens an identical subdialog.

On SPSS's 'Select cases' windows there is an option "If condition is satisfied", who is used to select bases based on some variable.

PSPP doesn't has this option.
