Accessing the sashelp or dictionary catalogs in EG

Are we able to access the sashelp or dictionary catalogs in EG? For example:
proc sql;
create table work.temp as select
trim(libname)!!'.'!!trim(memname)!!'.'!!trim(objname)!!'.'!!objtype
as changed,
datepart(modified) as modified format=date9.,
timepart(modified) as modtime format HHMM.,
objdesc
from dictionary.catalogs /*sashelp.vcatalg*/
where libname in ('SYSTEM' 'CTS' 'PARMDL')
and memname in ('SCREENS' 'SOURCE')
and objtype ne 'MACRO'
order by 2, 3, 1;
quit;

If you're asking whether you can run such a program in EG, the answer is yes.

If you like to work with catalogs, you might check out the Catalog Explorer custom task, provided as a downloadable custom task example at
