|SAS Companion for the CMS Environment
No matter which mode of operation you use for running
SAS, you may want to customize certain aspects of your SAS session. For example,
you may want to change the line size or page size for your output, or you
may want to see performance statistics for your SAS programs.
Under CMS, you can customize SAS for your session in
the following ways:
- Specify SAS system options when you invoke SAS
with the SAS command. This method is usually used for one-time overrides of
the system option settings that would otherwise be in effect for your SAS
session. See Specifying System Options in the SAS Command
- Specify SAS system options in a configuration
file. This method is useful if you, as an individual user, always want to
override the values of system options that are specified in your site's system
configuration file, or if you always want particular system options to be
in effect for a particular job. See Configuration Files
- Execute SAS statements (such as OPTIONS, LIBNAME,
and FILENAME statements) in an autoexec file. This method is most useful
for specifying options and allocating files that pertain to a particular SAS
application. See Autoexec Files
- Execute an OPTIONS statement in a SAS program.
See OPTIONS Statement
- You can also change SAS system option settings
from the OPTIONS window. See OPTIONS Window.
- In the windowing environment, specify a SASUSER
library that contains a user profile catalog. See SASUSER Library.
