Adding date to a file name
Can anyone tell me if it's possible for me to add the current date to
a file name being created in an ODS statement? I'd like to setup my
program so that when anyone else runs it, the date that they run it is
automatically attached to the RTS file name. For instance, today's
file would be called "InvName060904". I tried using a let statement,
and was able to create the proper value as follows:
%let date = compress(put(today(),mmddyy8.),'/');
However, it's not working when I substitute this in the RTF file name,

How do you get the name of the currently execting script?
By this I mean the name of the include file that is being executed:
//Call some function to display include.php or whatever my filename is
inlcude( "include.php" );
I tried everything in the $_SERVER variable but to no avail - Googling
it doesn't help as it all points to either the include method or the
$_SERVER variable. These all just give me 'holder.php' or similar.
I want this as I want to create a LOGGER class similar to the one in

I think you need to add two periods after &date, as the macro processor
will eat the first one, as it is written now you will end up with:
ODS RTF FILE = "InvName060904RTF"; <from ODS RTF FILE =
And I think you want:
ODS RTF FILE = "InvName060904.RTF"; <from ODS RTF

I'd like to rename a group of files with the date in the file name.
I'm not quite sure how to do that. I have figured out how to set a
date to a variable, but the renaming bit is eluding me.

ren C:\Test*.iut %TODAY%_*.IUT

you don't need the left() nor the compress()
Just use format mmddyyN6
call symput("date", put("&sysdate"d,mmddyyN6.) );
without a datastep, one alternative is
%let date= %sysfunc( date(), mmddyyN6 ) ;

You can use &sysdate or &sysdate9 macro variables added to the log file name.

Here are your choices:

I recommend altlog;
then you have the current log and your date-stamped logs.

This is controlled with the LOGPARM option. You will need to consult
the documentation to figure out the details for your specific
application. Espically the section "Directives for Controlling the
Name of SAS Log Files".
LOGPARM= "<OPEN= APPEND | REPLACE | REPLACEOLD>
<ROLLOVER= AUTO | NONE | SESSION>
<WRITE= BUFFERED | IMMEDIATE>"

Here is another solution utilizing SAS DM commands. Code could be inserted =
at the end of the program or at any point where you want your log sent to e=
filename logfile "C:\workfolder\log_&sysdate9..log"=3B =20
dm log 'file logfile replace' output =3B=20
It saves the log at the external location while still keeping it in the SAS=
Hope it helps

I'm trying to delete files that are older than the current day and are

Has anyone done this before successfully and have a script I could use?

I was wondering is there any way to do this:
I have written a class in python and __init__ goes like this:

self.age =3D 50
now here there is data.py in the same directory and contents are like:
self.address =3D 'your address'
self.status =3D 'single'
The problem is 'self' is giving some error here. I need to know if
somehow I can do this. It's like inserting the script as it's part of
the file itself.

I have a number of files which contain PHP scripts like:
The included PHP script uses $file_name to get the last uploaded time stamp of the named file and process it into a displayable line. All that works as intended.
What I don't like is the need for $file_name='mtg10.php'; It would be much handier if I could write something like $file_name=getNameOfThisFile(); instead.
