That is a drastic solution, in that Malcolm may not want to discard the rest of his dataset at this point. He could use -preserve- before these lines and -restore- after, but a kinder and gentler approach would be

g byte nowant = (x != 5)
g enn = _n
sort nowant (enn)
l enn x in 1/10

I'm sure this question is easy to answer, but searching for it is a little
hard given that there are a lot of "if"s and "in"s in the documentation.

I want to be able to list the first 10 observations that conform to a given
'if' statement.

I can't do

list if x=5 in 1/10

or

list in 1/10 if x=5

since that only returns the first 10 observations in the data -if- they
conform.
