Tip of the Day
sasCommunity Tip of the Day
The SLEEP function is different in PC SAS than for non-Windows SAS. For PC SAS, the default unit is seconds, while under Unix the default unit is milliseconds. So x = sleep(10); on PC AND x = sleep(10000); under Unix produce the same result. Thanks Murphy Choy, Rivo Ramamonjy, and Andre Wielki for their expertise!
P.S. So if you want to write a SAS program that is portable between unix, windows and the mainframe then use the second argument to the sleep function as well. x = sleep(10,1); will sleep for 10 seconds on all hosts.
