Thanks for the SCL code. If I'd read my notes a bit closer, I would have
seen that PROC SETINIT NOALIAS gives you a list of the components you have
licensed, which as has been pointed out, may not be the same as the list of
those you have installed. I haven't found the NOALIAS option in either the
6.12 or the v8 documentation; our site SAS support person told me about it,
but I don't know where he heard about it from. It does return different
results from PROC SETINIT without the option specified, at least here. With
it, we get a list of each individual component we have licensed. Without
it, many of our components are wrapped up into a single enterprise license
entry. Maybe it depends on the licensing arrangements.

I was not aware of the (undocumented?) NOALIAS option. I was of Jack
Hamilton's mindset that you had to check file/catalogs exisiting in the
!SASROOT directory. Here is some SCL code I use to let user's know that a
feature is not available from lack of product licensing or installation of
if sysprod('graph') ^= 1
or fileexist("!sasroot\graph\sasexe\sasxgsup.dll") = 0
rc = gray('GRAPHICS'); link ckrc;
_msg_ = 'This function requires the ' ||
end; else do;
end; * if;
call notify('EXIT', '_cursor_');
I would be curious to know if the NOALIAS option on PROC SETINIT really
indicates installation or just itemizes which products are included in a
license package. BTW, I saw no difference whether I used the NOALIAS option
or not in my PROC SETINIT results.
