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 could directly use for programmatic package retrieval.
