Miscellaneous Resources

You can also customize the following resources:

SAS.altVisualId: ID
specifies a visual type ID.

SAS.autoSaveInterval: minutes
specifies how often (in number of minutes) that the data from the Program Editor window should be saved.

SAS.autoSaveOn: True|False
specifies that data from the Program Editor window should be saved to a file at intervals specified by the SAS.autoSaveInterval resource.

SAS.confirmSASExit: True|False
controls whether SAS displays the Exit dialog box when you enter the DLGENDR command or select

The default is True.

SAS.defaultCommandWindow: True|False
specifies whether the command window is invoked when you start your SAS session. The default is True. directory-pathname
specifies the directory that you want when you first invoke the Open dialog box. By default, the Open dialog box uses the current directory.

SAS.graphicsClipboardPath: directory-name
specifies the directory to place the GSTORE temporary file in. The default directory is /usr/tmp and is usually the best place to store the temporary file. To cut and paste graphs and images between between SAS sessions, the setting of this resource must be identical in both sessions, and the path must be accessible to the systems on which the sessions are running.

SAS.hasXPrinter: True | False
specifies whether host printing is turned on. The default is False.

SAS.helpBrowser: pathname
specifies the pathname of the World Wide Web browser that you want to use for viewing the online help. The default browser is Netscape.

SAS.insertModeOn: True|False
controls the editing mode in SAS editor windows. The default is False (overtype).

SAS.noDoCommandRecall: True | False
controls whether or not SAS commands submitted through the sas-do-command() action routine are recorded in the command recall buffer. The default value of True causes commands to be omitted from the command recall buffer; a value of False causes them to be recorded.

SAS.pattern: default-pattern
specifies the default pattern that you want to be used as the file filter when you first invoke the Open and Import Image dialog boxes. This pattern is displayed in the text field at the top of the dialog box. By default, the dialog box uses the first filter in the File type list. The pattern resource has no effect on the File type field.

SAS.selectTimeout: seconds
specifies the X toolkit selection conversion timeout value in units of seconds. This determines the amount of time that the SAS System will wait for a request to convert an X toolkit selection to complete. The default value should be adequate in most cases.

SAS.startupLogo: xpm-filename | None | ""
specifies the XPM file that you want the SAS System to display when it is initialized. If the string is empty, the SAS System uses the default logo.

SAS.startSessionManager: True|False
specifies whether SAS automatically starts the session manager when a new SAS session is started. Using your own host editor with SAS requires that the session manager be running. The default is True.

SAS.wsaveAllExit: True|False
specifies whether SAS should issue the WSAVE ALL command when you end your session. This command saves the global settings, such as window color and window position, that are in effect for all windows that are currently open. The default is False.

SAS.webBrowser: pathname
specifies the pathname of the World Wide Web browser that you want invoked when the WBROWSE command is issued. The default browser is Netscape.
