If by system you mean created outside of SAS, then no it isn't. Typically
you would assign a value to the sysparm option either on the SAS command
line , or in the SAS Config file. Both use the -sysparm keyword to assign
the value. Its value is available to SAS automatically through the macro
I'm assuming you mean by system variable created in the OS outside of SAS,
and that isn't the case. It is created by SAS at startup according to
values passed as above.
