What application is this?



Could you tell me what does the SAS application do?


when I right click the application(a .link file) and look at the properties, the target is:


"C:\Program Files\SASHome\SASFoundation\9.3\sas.exe" "D:\Project\" -batch -nologo -awsdef 0 0 100 100 -awstitle XYAAS-sdeeddt -print "%userprofile%/aaa.lst" -log "%userprofile%/aaa.log"



Could you explain what kind of application is this?

If you want to understand more about running SAS in batch mode under Windows this is a good place to start:
