With hundreds of SAS options “in play ” during a SAS session, keeping the players organized requires knowledge of: � the position (performance, security, output control and so on) an option plays � the timing of when the option can play (start-up, post-startup) � the actions (get, set, reset) supported for an option This paper explains and provides example usage of interfaces available for establishing, updating, and querying SAS options. These are a sample of questions addressed in this paper: � Which configuration file set an option value? � How can an option value be reset to a previously used value, the default value, or the value established at SAS start-up? � What is a restricted option and how can I tell if an option can be restricted or is restricted
