Can you use PROC PRINTTO? This is used to redirect your log to a specified
file. That sounds like what you want to do.

Subject: Writing the log to a file
For auditing and debugging purposes, I need like to write a macro (or some
routine) that writes the SAS log to a file from within a SAS program. I
want it to work like the File/Save-As menu items in Windows SAS. I need to
be able to include it within the program rather than declaring an
alternative log file at startup. The intent is to distribute the routine to
everybody in my group, so it needs to be rather bullet-proof.
I know I can write this:
dm log 'file log_file replace';
But when I run it in Windows, for some reason, it opens a second stray
editor window. That gets in my way and confuses the people I support. And
I've never gotten it to work under batch Unix, maybe because there is no
Display Manager active in a batch session.
How about it? Is there some "write_log_file" statement that I'm missing?
