reading web use URL has a problem

Hello everyone,

I want ask SAS to read content of a website,at first I use the example as below:

filename foo url

    'http://support.sas.com/techsup/service_intro.html';

    

data _null_;

   infile foo length=len;

   input record $varying200. len;

   put record $varying200. len;

   if _n_=15 then stop;

run;

this is an example of SAS,but when I run the code ,error happened as the log show:

ERROR: Hostname support.sas.com not found.

please advise.

Thanks!

Mike

hi ... that's not a valid URL on the SAS web site

if you try that URL in a browser you get the attached error

valid URLs work, for example ...

filename foo url 'http://support.sas.com/techsup/support.html'  ;

    

data _null_;

infile foo;

input;

put _infile_;

if _n_ eq 15 then stop;

run;
