I think the best currently available way is to use -label save-. (See
-whelp label- for details.)

You might like to write a utility to use -label save- to produce an
output dataset (or resultsset) with 1 observation per value and data on
the values and their labels, possibly in multiple languages. 

I hope this helps.

-labelbook- lists the range of values, as in the example below. How
can one access this range for subsequent processing?
