Subject: Solution to print date 'n' time of syntax run
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
we need an identification in our outputs to know when the syntax was
We created the following:
STRING SyntaxRunAt (A20).
COMPUTE SyntaxRunAt = STRING ($time, DATETIME20).
LIST SyntaxRunAt /CASE=1.
MATCH FILES FILE=* /DROP SyntaxRunAt.
This solution has a couple of disadvantages, e. g. a data file has been
defined before the 3 lines can be used, a new variable has to be
created which has to be removed after the routine, the 3 lines takes a
lot of time if the data set is very large.
Is there a better solution?
Any help is appreciated.
