As the first step in the decommissioning of sasCommunity.org the site has been converted to read-only mode.
Here are some tips for How to share your SAS knowledge with your professional network.
Changing your program to run on Unix
Change from this format : LIBNAME in "d:\myfolder" ;
where d: refers to the drive where your file is saved, to
LIBNAME in "~/myfolder" ;
For example, your LIBNAME statement on a Windows machine might be:
LIBNAME in "c:\users\annmaria" ;
on Unix it would be
LIBNAME in "~/users/annmaria" ;
NOTE: the ~/ refers to your personal userid, similar to saving something in My Documents on Windows. Often you may want to save your data somewhere else. If you work at a large institution you may have a small amount of space for your home directory but a very large amount of space on a shared project directory. To read or write data using that directory, say it is /home/scf-sam4/ademars you would just write your statement as follows,
LIBNAME in "/home/scf-sam4/ademars" ;
note that there is no ~
Now that you have the general idea, the changes to the rest of the statements controlling SAS input and output should be fairly obvious. If I want to create an html file in my SAS program, I would change my statement from
ODS HTML FILE = "d:\myfolder\filename.html" ;
ODS HTML FILE = "~/myfolder/filename.html" ;
