?? inactivate _debug

I am developing HTML-code for SAS IntrNet.

For debugging, I have used a line like this:

put '<input type="hidden" name="_debug" value="131">';

Now I can't avoid getting log-output even if I inactivate or delete this line.

Any inactivation option somewhere?

Inactivation? Maybe... This is possible. You can choose to send all of your output to a nul device on your operating system


file outfile 'NUL';

/*filename outfile 'Ussual_file.html';*/


data
_null_;

     set sashelp.cars;

     file outfile encoding="utf-8";

     put Make Model Year;

run;

  Or if you want, comment out certain put statements using a macro variable which comments out lines when it holds an asterisk;

%let debug=*;

    

data _null_;

   input idno name $ startwght 3.;

    put name @;

   &debug

     if startwght ne . then

          put @15 startwght;

      &debug

                     else put;

     datalines;
