stimer informat

Hello,

 

I would like to use stimer informat to read the time of a log file into a dataset and of course transform the real time and cpu time into seconds in order to class the procedure based on their execution time.

 

Could some one give me an example that will help me to read the time of the log file how could have one of the following format:

 

ss

ss.ss

mm:ss

mm:ss.ss

hh:mm:ss.ss

 

Regards,

Alain

Re: stimer informat

I am not sure what your question is. The STIMER informat will read data in the forms you listed.

data test;
  infile cards dsd truncover;
  input type :$11. raw :$11. expect;
  informat expect time. ;
  stimer=input(raw,stimer11.);
  format stimer expect time12.2 ;
cards;
ss,10,0:0:10.0
ss.ss,12.12,0:0:12.12
mm:ss,20:20,0:20:20.0
mm:ss.ss,30:30.30,0:30:30.30
hh:mm:ss.ss,40:40:40.40,40:40:40.40
;

proc print;
run;
