This is really a limitation rather than a bug.   The TO convention does not work with /RENAME

However the example provided does reveal that the parameters in the error message have been inadvertently transposed.  I've pushed a fix for that.

pspp (GNU PSPP) 1.3.0-g65c0ae on x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7200U CPU @ 2.50GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux.

Syntax:
SET PRINTBACK = ON.
DATA LIST LIST /A B C.
BEGIN DATA
1 2 3
4 5 6
END DATA.

  • This works.

SAVE OUTFILE = "test1.sav"
 /RENAME=(A C = v1 v3).
LIST.

  • This fails.

SAVE OUTFILE = "test2.sav"
 /RENAME=(A B C = v1 TO v3).

Output:
SET PRINTBACK = ON.
DATA LIST LIST /A B C.
