PROC DATASETS, I presume you mean, is the procedure you'd use to clean up
temporary work datasets. Why do you want to know a different one?
Memory is not the same as disk space, also... cleaning up disk space won't
help much with memory unless you're running out of disk swap space.
Perhaps you could give more details to the list about your PROC GLM model
and then some of the more well-versed PROC GLMers could help you out then?
