|Content-Type: ||TEXT/PLAIN; charset=US-ASCII|
I know there have been a lot of nice macros posted on this newsgroup. I
wrote a few macros a couple of years ago. Then the scripting feature was
added to SPSS. I was told that scripts could do what macros can do plus
lots more and that the script language would replace the macro language.
So I decided not to work on learning macros any more, that instead I
should learn to write scripts. But I feel intimidated by the script
language because there are no manuals. So far I have not learned anything
about writing scripts!
I'm just wondering what other people think about this confusing
situation? Do some people use both?
