|Subject: ||logging SAS runs in a Novell/SASWin environment|
I have a course project on experimental design I'm trying to port from
VM/CMS to SAS 6.10 under Windoze in a Novell teaching lab. Students
design an 'experiment' by creating a SAS data set which describes
the factors and levels, and run a macro which generates simulated
One requirement to make this project work is that I have to be able to
log a record to a file somewhere which identifies the student and
their experimental design. Under CMS I did this by (a) the macro
writes the record to the student's disk, then (b) mails the file
to an account set up for this purpose.
I'm at a loss as to how to accomplish this under Novell. If I set up a
shared directory in which students have write priviledges, one of them
could wipe out or change the logged information. If they don't have
write access, the SAS macro will fail.
Does anyone have any ideas?
