VASMP Procedure

QUIT Statement

The QUIT statement is used to end the procedure execution. When the procedure reaches the QUIT statement, all resources allocated by the procedure are released. You can no longer execute procedure statements without invoking the procedure again. However, the connection to the server is not lost, because that connection was made through the SAS LASR Analytic Server engine. As a result, any subsequent invocation of the procedure that uses the same libref executes almost instantaneously because the engine is already connected to the server.

Interaction: Using a DATA step or another procedure step is equivalent to issuing a QUIT statement. If there is an error during the procedure execution, it is also equivalent to issuing a QUIT statement.
