|SAS Companion for the OS/390 Environment
Wherever you specify the name of a physical
file internally (in
a SAS LIBNAME or FILENAME statement, LIBNAME or FILENAME function, in a DATA
step, or in a SAS procedure, for example), the name can be in any of these
Here are examples of the INCLUDE command
the various ways you can specify physical files:
- INCLUDE MYPGM
- MYPGM is a fileref that was previously associated
with the external file.
- INCLUDE MYPGM(PGM1)
- PGM1 is a member of the partitioned data
set that is associated with the fileref MYPGM.
- INCLUDE 'USERID.TEST.PGMS'
- sequential data set name.
- INCLUDE 'USERID.TEST.PGMS(AAA)'
- data set name with member specified.
- INCLUDE '.TEST.MYPGM'
- Assuming that the FILESYSTEM= system option
is set to MVS, SAS prepends this data set name with the value of the SAS system
option SYSPREF=, which defaults to the your system prefix. If FILESYSTEM=HFS,
SAS looks into your default UNIX System Services directory for the "hidden"
- INCLUDE 'HFS:/u/userid/mypgms/mypgm1.c'
- name of a UNIX System Services file in the
hierarchical file system, represented by a partially qualified path. SAS searches
for the file in the default HFS directory for that user. If the FILESYSTEM=
system option was set to HFS and if MYPGM was a standard OS/390 data set,
the alternate syntax of MVS: would be required above (see FILESYSTEM=).
- This is another example of a relative path to a UNIX System
Services file. Any file name containing a slash (/) is assumed to be in UNIX
System Services, regardless of the value of the FILESYSTEM= system option.
|Handling of Nonstandard Member Names|
use the SAS system option FILEEXT= to specify how extensions
in member names of partitioned data sets are to be handled. See FILEEXT= for more
