When to Use a SAS/CONNECT Script

How do you know whether you need to write or to modify a script? The need for a script file when using the TCP/IP access method depends on whether you are connecting to a spawner that runs on a server and how that spawner was invoked.
For details about the various access methods, script requirements, and sample script files, see Communications Access Methods for SAS/CONNECT and SAS/SHARE Your site might also have sample scripts available from your system administrator.
If the available sample scripts do not meet your requirements, you can write your own script. If you do need to write or to modify a script, review the examples in this chapter, and see SAS/CONNECT Script Statements for descriptions of the script statements that are used in the examples.
