FONTSLOC=hig- level qualifier(s) | HFS directory path

high-level qualifier(s)

specified when the font files that are supplied by SAS are stored in native MVS files.

HFS directory path

specified if the font files are saved in a UFS directory.


SAS distributes font files for use by the universal printer GIF driver as native z/OS files with the following characteristics:

If the font files were installed into SAS9.SASMONO.TTF and SAS9.SASMONOB.TTF, specify FONTSLOC=SAS9 at SAS invocation.

These font files can be copied to the UFS file system if it is available at your site. In this case, the specification for the FONTSLOC= option would be similar to FONTSLOC='/sas9/fonts', assuming that the font files were saved in this directory.
