Script used by SPSS, an application for statistical analysis; stores instructions written using the Sax Basic language; used for automating repetitive tasks, such as opening and saving files and performing data transformations.
Each SPSS script is categorized into one of three types:
Starter script: a template script included with the software that provides helpful code segments for users to learn scripting.
Global script: a library script that can be referenced by any other script.
Autoscript script: a script that is automatically run when certain trigger conditions are met in the software.
NOTE: More recent versions of SPSS use .SPS files for scripts.
