Subject: %include path relative to location of the current program file?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
I've got some biggish, "production"-ish jobs that are split up into multiple program files, which I %include into a main control program. I've also got a couple of versions stored in different places (e.g., a development location where I'm working, and a deployment location where it runs for real). I've been doing things like this in main.sas:
%let codehome = \\bibbity\bobbity\boo ;
%include "&codehome.\set_em_up.sas" ;
%include "&codehome.\knock_em_down.sas" ;
And when I move from dev to deployment I edit the codehome var so it points to the deployed versions of those files.
This works, but gives me an opportunity to forget to edit codehome & screw up in a more conspicuous fashion than I'd like.
Does SAS have a function to retrieve the location of the currently running program, so I can set that programmatically?
