Can I run MDS procedure in IML?

I am using IML, and I need to run Multidimensional Scaling (MDS).
Can I call "proc MDS" in SAS/IML?
Thanks.

You can't call out to SAS code from inside a PROC IML session, but you can do so from IML Workshop or Stat Studio (which is being reanmed to IML Studio). What version of SAS do you have now?

I am using V9.1. I think I do not have IML Studio.
It seems that I cannot perform MDS inside PROC IML. I need to output the matrix to SAS base and use the MDS procedure then.

You can download IML Workshop free from the SAS support website:

http://support.sas.com/rnd/app/da/workshop.html

With this product you can run proc mds from inside your IML invocation, and continue running IML uninterrupted.
