SAS Package Retriever

SAS Package Retriever is an SCL application that enables you to retrieve package data from a transport—archive, message queue, or WebDAV-compliant server—to an appropriate storage location on your SAS system or an external file location. After you designate a storage location for the entry (for example, at a libref, fileref, or a file location), you can reference the entry for inclusion in a SAS program for continued package publishing in the business enterprise.
Examples of package data include SAS data (such as a SAS data set, SAS catalog, or a SAS database) and external data (such as an HTML file, binary file, text file, or viewer file).
Underlying the functions of SAS Package Retriever is a subset of the Publish Package CALL routines that relate explicitly to retrieving packages, which you can use directly for programmatic package retrieval.
To invoke SAS Package Retriever, enter the following command on the SAS command line:
