The SASEFAME Interface Engine

Reading and Converting FAME Database Time Series

The SASEFAME engine supports reading and converting time series stored in FAME databases. The SASEFAME engine uses the FAME WORK database to temporarily store the converted time series. All series specified by the FAME wildcard are written to the FAME WORK database. For conversion of very large databases, you may want to define the FAME_TEMP environment variable to point to a location where there is ample space for FAME WORK.

SASEFAME provides seamless access to FAME databases via FAME’s C Host Language Interface (CHLI). The FAME CHLI does not support writing more than 2 gigabytes to the FAME WORK area, and when this happens SASEFAME will terminate with a system error. The SASEFAME engine finishes the CHLI whenever a fatal error occurs. To restart the engine after a fatal error, terminate the current SAS session and bring up a new SAS session.
