Subject: Kill the sas program if it runs too long
I am running a program which takes a long time. Could I calculate how long
the sas has run this program so far. We can know that from log file.
The problem is that: If the sas program runs more than 12 hours, I need to
kill this program. Therefore the problem is that I need to ask sas to
calculate how long this program has been running and kill it automatically
if it's over 12 hours.
Could someone provide some sample code?
Thanks a lot!
