I recommend the following excellent NESUG paper
Program Validation: Logging the Log
by Adel Fahmy
http://www.nesug.org/html/Proceedings/nesug04/ap/ap09.pdf (8 pages)
This paper describes a program that scans SAS logs
for a list of over 90 keywords (error, warning ...)
or phrases (has not, must be, never been, no by, ...)
contained in a text file.
if you thought that searching your log
for Error or Warning was enough to get you off the hook
you'll be amazed at how much can go wrong
and you still get output!
