The DISPLAY procedure executes SAS/AF applications. These applications are composed of a variety of entries that are stored in a SAS catalog and that have been built with the BUILD procedure in SAS/AF software. For complete documentation on building SAS/AF applications, see SAS Guide to Applications Development .
You can use the DISPLAY procedure to execute an application that runs in NODMS batch mode. Be aware that any SAS programming statements that you submit with the DISPLAY procedure through the SUBMIT block in SCL are not submitted for processing until PROC DISPLAY has executed.
If you use the SAS windowing environment, you can use the AF command to execute an application. SUBMIT blocks execute immediately when you use the AF command. You can use the AFA command to execute multiple applications concurrently.
