I'm not sure if comments ought to be in output. I think they're for
the benefit of someone reading the code.  Maybe people can tell us what 
they think.

If you want a string to be printed in the output, then ECHO is the command
you are looking for.

     Hey folks,
     I use a pspp -o output.pdf input.stat to generate a report as an

     I further learned to use COMMENT or * to mark what exactly is calculated
     where, but this output is omitted in the PDF. Is there a way to print
     these comments?
     Sorry, I hope it's nothing to obvious. COMMENT and PRINT don't do that,
     it seems...
