I need to use PROC GCHART to generate some charts on z/Os mainframe. When I run the code below in interactive SAS window, I get a a message "No device name has been given--please enter device name:"
PROC GCHART DATA=SASHELP.CLASS ; PIE AGE ; RUN ;
I assign the device to "GIF" and it works fine. After that I need to transfer the output file from z/Os Mainframe to PC to view it.
I want to know if there is a way where we can see the output in z/Os mainframe screen itself so that transferring the file everytime during testing can be avoided.
Can anyone help?

So far as I know, z/OS doesn't have a viewer for GIF images, so you'll have to transfer your image files to your PC to view them. However, if you're using an emulator on your PC to access z/OS, you should be able to use the WBROWSE command to open the SAS Remote Browser and view the file. Here's a link to the documentation for the WBROWSE command:
If you don't have the SAS Remote Browser set up, you'll probably have to continue transferring your files to your PC for viewing.
