Specifies a file containing a SAS program when running in batch
or noninteractive mode
||configuration file, SAS invocation
'file-specification-2' ... 'file-specification-n')
- identifies the file in one of the following
forms. Refer to Identifying an External File
for additional details.
- 'filename <filetype <filemode | SFS-directory
- specifies the filename, filetype, and filemode
or SFS directory, respectively. This type of file specification is required
for concatenated lists of the form ('file-specification-1' 'file-specification-2'
... 'file-specification-n'). If specifying a single file, the filetype
may be omitted; SAS responds by assuming a filetype of SAS.
- specifies a logical name to be associated
with an external file. This one- to eight-character name is not enclosed in
quotes. The fileref must have been assigned with a CMS FILEDEF command. If
your CMS installation supports the access of OS/390 data sets from CMS (shared
DASD), a member of an OS/390 partitioned data set can also be read with the fileref specification, assuming that the fileref was previously associated
with a specific PDS member using the CMS FILEDEF command.
