The SAS System known well as Statistical Analysis System, is one of the most widely used, flexible data processing, reporting...
This tutorial assumes that SAS v 9.1.3 was installed on a Unix server at the location /opt/sas/ and the SAS interactive executable is /opt/sas/sasi on a Sun Solaris Unix server and Hummingbird Exceed software available on a PC.
In order to view the Interactive SAS Windowing environment on a Unix Box…One would require the X Windows display manager software like Humming Bird Exceed / Citrix Software or any similar software on his/her PC.
Run the command from the computer’s Start |Run
“C:\Program Files\Hummingbird\Connectivity\xxxx\Exceed\exceed.exe” -m query -w single -h UnixBox
where xxxx is the version of Exceed
Enter your login credentials…You would require access to “UnixBox” server
If you are doing this for the first time then choose either “Java desktop Environment or CDE Desktop” as your options.
This would open like a desktop environment…
Then change directory to /opt/sas/ and then type “sasi” to invoke SAS..
Alternatively, you could type “/opt/sas/sasi” at the $ prompt..
The next screen shots show how SAS looks like on Unix Box and an example SAS Code that I have executed.
