Subject: Re: capturing line size, page lengt
You can use proc sql and dictionary.options to get any sas system option
for example this code creates a table with the setting for SASAUTOS.
CREATE TABLE OPTS AS
The only thing is to make sure the option name is exactly right. You can
check dictionary.options to see how your options are named in the optname
