The SPSS Inc. Code Center in now live at http://forums.spss.com/code_center/. The SPSS Code Center is the online resource for accessing freeware software, source code, software development kits (SDKs) and example scripts published by SPSS for use with the new functionality of the SPSS 14.0 Programmability Extension.
The SPSS Programmability Extension provides the ability to extend the SPSS command syntax language with the full capabilities of external programming languages. Program code written in an external language can be used to control the flow of SPSS syntax jobs based on variable attributes, procedure output, and error codes.
On the SPSS Code Center you will find the SPSS-Python Integration Plug-In, which is a complete, example plug-in for integrating the open source Python** programming language with the SPSS Programmability Extension.
+ An installer that configures itself for use with SPSS
+ Native Python package containing a library of functions that interact with the SPSS backend processor API
+ Complete documentation with examples.
You'll also find an example library of Python code and SPSS syntax jobs for use with the SPSS-Python Integration Plug-In.
Current Python examples include:
+ Functions for simplifying the calls to the SPSS backend processor for common tasks
+ Bootstrap regression
+ Poisson regression
+ A function for creating dummy variables
+ ...and more everyday
