Hi Team,

 

We are planning to migrate Mainframe SAS JCL's to Korn shell scripting. If any one ccan help then please share any example from Mainframe SAS JCL to korn shell script to read the SAS program. And the source from where we can learn this type of conversion. It will be really helpful.

 

Thanks,

Abhishek

The only change that occurs on a routine basis is to convert each DD statement to either a FILENAME (for text) or a LIBNAME (for SAS data sets) statement.

 

You can even practice now.  Mainframe SAS permits these statements, although they are slightly more complex on a mainframe.
