proc datasets library=work;

SAS library Information from PROC DATASETS with the V9 Engine

1     proc datasets library=work;


                           Libref         WORK
                           Engine         V9
                           Physical Name  SASDISK:[SASDEMO.SAS$WORK2542293E]

                                             Member  File Size

The output shows you the libref, engine, and physical name associated with the library, as well as the names of the data sets that the library contains. It also shows the names of any catalogs and valid memtype stored in the library.

The CONTENTS statement of the DATASETS procedure generates the same Engine/Host Dependent Information as the CONTENTS procedure.
