Dear SAS-L-ers,

Kumar posted the following in SAS_Learner's thread on suppressing stuff in the SAS Log:

> Try: > > Options nomtrace nomprint nomerror nomlogic nosymbolgen nosource nosource2; > 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!
