In unix sas i created a .txt file, i need to encrypt (preferably in .pgp format) this .txt file. And also upload the encrypted file on web. This has to be done automatically (without any manual intervention). Can we do the above steps in SAS.
From the SAS support http://support.sas.com/ website, you can find technical and conference papers on various topics. Not specific to external file encryption, however, you will find other "like application" papers and technical reference material, where the "X" command is used to run external commands. And, SAS has an FTP "engine" you can use with FILENAME to send your encrypted file.
