Been looking through some old code and came across this syntax:
x=put(today(), date9. -l);
The Put function has an odd -1 in it. As far as I can tell it does nothing. But there is nothing in the help about this. In my mind it should syntax error but it doesn't.
I want to convert to EG (SAS 9.4) and use the prompt manager and default macro variable values which result.
So what is it and is I leave it out what's the result?
