|HELPINDEX=index-pathname-1 < index-pathname-2 < index-pathname-3>>|
specifies the partial pathname of the index file that is to be used by the SAS Documentation Java applet in a UNIX environment. applet-index-filename must have a file extension of .txt and it must reside in a path that is specified by the HELPLOC= system option. The default is /help/common.hlp/index.txt.
specifies the partial pathname of an accessible index file that is to be used by the online SAS Documentation in UNIX, OpenVMS, or z/OS environments. An accessible index file is an HTML file that can be used by Web browsers. accessible-index-filename must have a file extension of .htm and it must reside in a path that is specified by the HELPLOC= system option. The default pathname is /help/common.hlp/keywords.htm.
specifies the pathname of the Microsoft HTML Help index that is to be used by the online SAS Documentation in Windows environments. The default pathname is common.hhk. For information about creating an index for Microsoft HTML Help, see your Microsoft HTML Help documentation.
Use the HELPINDEX option if you have a customized index that you want to use instead of the index that SAS supplies. If you use one configuration file to start SAS in more than one operating environment, you can specify all of the partial pathnames in the HELPINDEX= option. The order of the pathnames is not important, although only one pathname of each type can be specified.
When the HELPINDEX= option specifies a pathname for UNIX, OpenVMS, or z/OS operating environments, SAS determines the complete path by replacing /help/ in the partial pathname with the pathname specified in the HELPLOC= option. If the HELPLOC= option contains more than one pathname, SAS searches each path for the specified index.
