I use unix and pc interactively and
pc scheduled batch all the time.
I haven't done unix batch for a couple
years, but anyone can correct my
memory and my laziness to go fetch
You should be safe to drop the:
-terminal -batch -dmsbatch -fsdevice x11
-nodms (turns off the display manager)
-nologo (turns off the logo)
-sysin myprog.sas (-sysin preceeds the source code to run)
You could also not use the:
I use -log instead of the -altlog or the stdout direction.
-config (followed by config.sas path&filename)
-autoexec (followed by autoexec.sas path&filename)
The above are some of the command flags that
I have had success with.
Hope this is helpful,

Subject: sas cron job
I'm a new SAS user on unix - has any one out there run SAS through cron?
30 16 21 11 * /data/sas-81/sas /data/admin/process.sas -terminal -batch
-dmsbatch -fsdevice x11 -altlog /data/admin/process.log
and looked at process.log and saw SAS was trying to open an X window
(it was trying to open the Session Manager window).
How do I get SAS to not open any windows? I want to process the
data with no user interaction.
