Here is the code I am using to invoke SAS:
shell = os.environ.get('COMSPEC')
if shell is None: shell = os.environ.get('SHELL')
if shell is None: shell = 'an unknown command processor'
print 'Running under', shell
os.execl('C:\Program Files\SAS Institute\SAS\V8\SAS.exe')
However, the program in question is c:\work\run_ratios.sas, with 2
parameters: incov, and outcov. This program was initially invoked from an
aml program. The code that invoked SAS from this aml is:
&SYSTEM %.SASLOC% -SYSPARM %sas_parm% -log ~
%.ARCLOC%\ratios\log\%.file%.log -SYSIN ~
%.SASLOC%: the SAS executable file ('C:\Program Files\SAS
%sas_parm%: the list of parameters to be passed onto SAS
%.file%: the name of the log file that is generated during the execution of
the SAS program.
%.ARCLOC%: directory of the SAS program (c:\work)
I think this is an excellent forum to share ideas and solve problems. Thank
you ever so much for your assistance with this.
