Is there a way to redirect put statements within the data step to the result rather than the log?

Using PUT statement uses as default the FILE LOG output;

You can define any other output including FILE PRINT to have the output on result window.

 

data _null_;

   file print; put 'Output to result window';

   file log;   put 'Return to default';

run;

Show us what your trying to do. What are your writing to log matters.

I'm using SAS 9.4 under AIX 7 with bash.  I'm trying to redirect the output from put statements into a file.  I want the following command to output "hello, foobar" to stdout.

 

sas -stdio <(echo 'data _null_; put "hello, foobar"; run;') 2>/dev/null

It seems the only way to accomplish this is to explicitly use the file statement like this:

 

sas -stdio <(echo 'data _null_; file stdout; put "hello, foobar"; run;') 2>/dev/null

Inside your script file, put all of the commands within parentheses, like this:

(echo start
ls -l
echo end) | tee foo.log
