Correct you are. In fact you may store SAS macros in any aggregate storage
location. For operating systems like Windoze and Unix which have
tree-structured directories, that means directories. For MVS, that means a
PDS. For VMS, which is also a tree-structured environment, that means a
directory also. In addition you may use a TEXT LIBRARY (.TLB extension).
Why you would do this expect to prove that it works is beyond me; however it
can be done.
