about call python script in SAS EG?

Hi,

 

   I want to verify that I cam call python in SAS Enterprise Guide. Is there anyone that has a simple python script that I can run in SAS EG? Thank you!

   I do look at this link (https://github.com/sassoftware/enlighten-integration/tree/master/SAS_Base_OpenSrcIntegration), but kind of confused what to do with python.

If you are on a unix server then call IT, 99.9% of the time,  a reasonable Unix servers have Perl and Python installed.

Ask for the path and cd to the path then

 

type python from the command line, you should see

 

>>

Type

>> print "hello world"

hello world

 

You just ran your first program

 

SOAPBOX ON

If this does not work then let IT know that you are a programmer and need an operating system

SOAPBOX OFF
