This issue is still present. The toolchain is completely different from aug 2015.

Strange behavior.

I suspect this is a problem with readline on windows.

Still present in the GTK3 version. Maybe a MSWindows related problem

When running PSPP in terminal mode on windows the first character of the
executed line carries forward to the following line.  I can't seem to get around this




 if I type "/" sometimes the cursor will tab forward and allow me to enter a  subcommand, but then the following line will render with a "p"

     > /TYPE=TXT

 .1-5: error: GET DATA: Syntax error at `pTYPE': expecting `/'.

 .1-5: error: GET DATA: Syntax error at `pTYPE': expecting TYPE.

 I've installed two different versions on my Windows 7 computer and observe the same behavior. The version I'm currently running is PSPP-084-20150224
