The GOPTIONS Procedure


The GOPTIONS procedure provides information about the values of graphics options and the global statement definitions that are currently in effect in your session. The values displayed are either the defaults of the current device driver or user-defined values that have been assigned in your SAS session. You can use the GOPTIONS procedure to

Note:    Do not confuse the GOPTIONS procedure with the GOPTIONS statement. The GOPTIONS procedure lists the values that are defined in a GOPTIONS statement as well as in any other global statement definitions. See GOPTIONS Statement for a list of the graphics options that you can set with the GOPTIONS statement. See Graphics Options and Device Parameters Dictionary for a complete description of each graphics option.  [cautionend]

The list of graphics options displays in the SAS LOG window and includes the names of the options, the current values, and a brief description of each one. You can use PROC GOPTIONS statement options to control what information is listed and where it appears in the LOG window. Sample Output from the GOPTIONS Procedure contains a sample LOG listing.
