SASV9w.cfg

Hello all,

 

May I ask where SAS will search the SASxxx.cfg file automatically? 

 

Thanks!

It depends a little on your OS, here's the Unix documentation.

Hello Reeza,

 

I am still reading it now. lots of information in the documentation. also I think I don't have permission to change the cfg file.I am a programmer.

 

I have another quesiton for you, there is always a cfg file(Let's call it config1) at C:\Program Files\SASHome\SASFoundation\9.3,in the file always write:

               -config "C:\Program Files\SASHome\SASFoundation\9.3\nls\en\sasv9.cfg" (I don't have permission change it,I am a programmer)

and in the file: "C:\Program Files\SASHome\SASFoundation\9.3\nls\en\sasv9.cfg"(Let's call it config2),the real options were wrote inside. ....why not write all config in config1 but in config2 insdead?

 

 

Thank you!

NLS -> National Language Support

en -> English

 

What happens if you had multiple languages?

 

This provides the mechanism to have a default somewhere and then customized versions in the language section. 

If you don't have permissions and are 'just a programmer' then I wouldn't worry about the config file. To be frank the questions you've been asking are more administration related and not SAS 'programming' related so...
