may I assume you don't want to send an email, but just invoke
your private print program ?
Then you probably want to get the menu to invoke your program,
receiving data like a file prepared by some sas process.
The file command from pgm/log/output/+++ windows will easily
create such a file (if it is not already prepared by ods).
The X command can be used to invoke an application in your current
environment. Depending on whether you need to keep control of
timings, you may want to set option Xsync to yes or no.
On winXX platforms, you probably want to set option noXwait.
These are features described as if your session is in display
manager, but there are corresponding methods available for a sas
job running in batch.

What I really looking for is to write a add-in to SAS -- eg. a special print
When I invoke this special print option from the menu item, it will send the
in my SAS environment to this print program I wrote. Any idea on how can I
information within SAS environment to external program?
