Post by warren »

I'm getting the folloing error message when tring to execute SAS on the server:

stty: standard input: Invalid argument
-/bin/ksh[11]: /dev/fd/4: cannot execute [Permission denied]

Also, I'm looking for the SMFP.C on the Download page but I do not see it.

The example for using SAS shows using bash "process substitution", but your default shell is ksh. You would need to either explicity execute bash or change this user's default shell to use this example.

(bash process substitution is VERY useful with Co:Z, since it allows remote programs to view the input or output of todsn/fromdsn commands as a named pipe file that is automatically created and torn down by bash)
