Executive Summary

This paper describes how SAS jobs are automated under UNIX at the BC Ministry of Health Services. A job is a set of SAS program(s) and/or Perl modules to be run in sequence. Job steps can be listed in a text file for the Perl script to run. Having a well-tested perl script run the show has some advantages. Notification of job success or failure is reliable. Jobs can be restarted at the point of error. Logs are automatically date- and time-stamped. It is easy to migrate SAS code from development to production.
