Subject: scl calls within a data step?
In the past I recall postings regarding undocumented features of
base SAS of making calls to scl functions within a data step. Is
there better documentation now? Has this been presented at a SUGI?
What I am specifically looking for is a way to query individual options,
similar to the OPTGET* scl functions. The only way I have of doing this
now is with a PROC OPTIONS step with output to a dataset, then a datastep
to reformat this output to parse out the desired setting. A macro or
some way to invoke this set of scl functions would be a much more
efficient way of handling this.
