PROC OPTIONS displays far more options than PROC OPTSAVE is able to save. PROC OPTSAVE will not save options that can only be specified at startup.
However, it's helpful at times ( e.g. when comparing SAS Server configs when migrating servers ) to save all options in a dataset. The alternative is parsing the log output created by PROC OPTIONS.
Two potential solutions:
Changing this to Not Planned -- although technically it's already delivered, just by a different mechanism!
create table saveopts as select *
Did you know that you can find the current values for all options in DICTIONARY.OPTIONS (SASHELP.VOPT)?
Of course, the dictionary views! Excellent, thank you Chris.
