Subject: interactive prompt function in base sas?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
Several flavors of the base sas filename statement cause an interactive prompt to pop, for e.g., passwords and such.
Is there a general function or call routine in base sas that would allow me to write a macro that would interactively prompt the user for input? Optimally this would be something from base sas (my macro needs to run at multiple sites & I don't know who's got what licensed other than base & stat) and would work both in batch and interactive sas (and even across rsubmit boundaries if possible).
