Hi, using technology older than 12 years ago... SAS AF....

 

I want to get/know all SCL frames+catalog in order to "search" inside of them by "words" - like "grep" in linux.

 

In addition, is there a way to check where are those SCL are stored in order to "run" - like "/usr/local/html" in webserver.

 

Thanks

Do you want to identify the Frames or the SCL code?

 

Proc catalogs may get you started for what you ask.

proc catalog catalog=sashelp.afclass ;
contents  out=work.afclasscontents;
run;

At least in my installation sashelp.afclass has frames and SCL entries. There is a variable type in the out= data set of Type that indicates the Frame, SCL and Slist entries (plus a few more).  The Entrytype= option on the Proc statement limits the output to one type of entry.

 

The physical catalog location would be in SASHELP.VMEMBER or Dictionary.Members for Proc SQL

proc sql;
   create table work.cats as
   select * 
   from dictionary.members
   where libname='SASHELP' and memtype='CATALOG'
   ;
quit;

SAS/AF catalogs can only easily be searched using SAS/AF. Also SAS/AF can only be used via the SAS Windowing Environment aka Display Manager, the legacy user interface.

 

That means you have to have a 'full' SAS installation on a PC. While you can develop SCL programs that are just code and call them from Base SAS, I would not recommend doing any new development work in this product. SAS/AF is not designed for web-based or thin client applications. It won't work in Enterprise Guide or SAS Studio for example.
