Classic CL Command Language

QPSMR CL (Classic)

Powerful programming language

For experienced spec writers

The CL (Classic) Command language is one of the leading scripting systems. The program is designed for experienced spec writers to clean data and produce tabulations from Market Research data.

You will need a licence and software from your dealer to operate the CL (Classic) program.

CL includes a preprocessor and all the formatting and data manipulation facilities needed to produce state of the art tables.

An add-on CL option in the Companion program allows the use of the built in unlimited preprocessor to control the production of the Command Language (CL) script (.stp, .stpx, or .stpn files). Companion’s built in preprocessor can converts .stp files into a pre-processed .stpn files.

The main purpose of the preprocessor is to save coding with loops to generate repeated commands, and to control the script generation from a spreadsheet file.

Companion programs can include CL syntax tables, which allow you to insert CL instructions or include an entire CL file in the analysis. For more information on the facilities in the latest release, please see our recent posts.

The program will install with a help file and context help is accessible via the F1 key.  You can also view the manual here, however, you should copy this without permission from the authors.
