in the SAS Log:
> Options nomtrace nomprint nomerror nomlogic nosymbolgen nosource
SAS_learner, Kumar's cool OPTIONS statement will leave you with a thin,
trim SAS Log. But I am not sure that it is a good idea to suppress so
much good information in the long run.
If you use the afore-mentioned OPTIONS statement, then when your SAS
program wakes up in the morning, it may have a bad hangover and not know
where it has been, who it was with, what it was drinking, how much it
drank, how much of a fool it made of itself, who it went home with, and
where it's car is located:-)
SAS_learner, best of luck in your SAS endeavors!
