SPSS, as in the statistics package? Interesting. I didn't know there was a PDP-11 port of that (I only ever used it, on rare occasions, on OS/360). In fact, COSAP was developed for RSTS mainly to deliver an interactive stats package with capabilities vaguely like SPSS but a much friendlier user interface.
