Resolving Programs and Macro Calls

I have several old programs that we are trying to reorganize.  One of the things that I am trying to do is see what they are all using as input and creating as output.  Is there a way to get all of my source calls and macro calls to resolve from my calling SAS programs, without actually running the programs, so that I have some documentation available?

Re: Resolving Programs and Macro Calls

The question is different but looks like this one. https://communities.sas.com/communications.

My first thoughts would be using scaproc and run those as Linus did the proposal in that thread.

Analyzing programs without running those can be a hard challenge. SAS macro-s are possible change code.
Perhaps you can set all access on data/programs read-only and run the code with having obs=0 being set.

The code generation done as part of dataset content will be missed.
