Subject:      Re: conditional execution of unix job stream
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

For now I'm going with a simple solution suggested by Karsten Self which is to use the UNIX && command so that a subsequent command executes if and only if the previous command had no warnings or errors. I'm giving the method to a Finance prof and he'll have to let me know if the error/warning free condition is too severe. Other suggestions involve SAS macros which may be overkill in this case--it's not a production process. I merely used && with the x command in a SAS program because the prof will have an easy time editing as the members of the stream change:

x 'sas adata && f77 -o bdata bdata.f && bdata && sas cdata && sas dmerge && make -f Makefile && edata && sas fdata ';
