As part of the decommissioning effort for sasCommunity.org this article/tip has been migrated to communities.sas.com.
The new home for this article/tip is Use SAS DM Commands to Save and then Clear Your SAS Log (https://communities.sas.com/t5/SAS-Tips-from-the-Community/SAS-Tip-Use-SAS-DM-Commands-to-Save-and-then-Clear-Your-SAS-Log/m-p/476012#M188)
SAS DM (display manager) commands can be used to call windowing and text editor commands within a SAS program. In this example, the log is saved to a permanent file, and then it is cleared:
***put something in the log; proc print data=sashelp.flags (obs=1); run; ***save the log to a permanent file, overwriting if necessary; dm 'log; file "C:\My files\log 1 &sysdate9..log" replace'; ***Clear the log window; DM "log; clear; ";
