Hello Paul and Laurel,

The noalias option causes SAS to report the components of software bundles as separate lines in the SAS Log.

For example, at my benevolent employer, adding the noalias option when running the SETINIT procedure on a mid-range Unix box tells me that we have licensed SAS/CONNECT. Without noalias, that license is buried in a bundle.

So if you are interested in what software might be available (licensed) for use, go with the noalias option.
