the memory-resident part of a UNIX operating system that manages the computer's resources. The kernel allocates memory, schedules programs for execution, monitors devices, and so on.
library engine
an engine that accesses groups of files and puts them into the correct form for processing by SAS utility windows and procedures. A library engine also determines the fundamental processing characteristics of the library, presents lists of files for the library directory, and supports view engines.

See also engine.

See also view engine.

a name that is temporarily associated with a SAS data library. For example, in the name Sasuser.Accounts, the name Sasuser is the libref. You assign a libref with a LIBNAME statement or with an operating system command.
local SAS session
a SAS session running on the local host. The local session accepts SAS statements and passes those that are remote submitted to the remote host for processing. The local session manages the output and messages from both the local session and the remote session.
login directory

See home directory.

login shell
under UNIX operating systems, the program (or command interpreter) started when a user logs in.
a SAS file in a SAS data library.
member type
a SAS name assigned that identifies the type of information stored in a SAS file. Member types include ACCESS, DATA, CATALOG, PROGRAM, and VIEW.
menu bar
the primary list of items in a window which represent the actions or classes of actions that can be executed. Selecting an item executes an action, opens a pull-down menu, or opens a dialog box that requests additional information.

See also pop-up menu.

See also pull-down menu.

methods of running SAS
standard methods of operation used to run SAS programs. These methods are SAS/ASSIST software, SAS windowing environment, interactive line mode, noninteractive mode, and batch mode.
Multiple Engine Architecture (MEA)
a feature of SAS that enables it to access a variety of file formats through sets of instructions called engines.

See also engine.

native engine
an engine that accesses forms of SAS files created and processed only by SAS.

See also engine.

an interconnected group of computers.
noninteractive mode
a method of running SAS programs in which you prepare a file of SAS statements and submit the program to the operating system. The program runs immediately and occupies your current session.
in the SAS log, an informative message or explanation.
the route through a hierarchical file system leading to a particular file or directory
permanent SAS data library
a SAS library that is not deleted when a SAS session terminates, and which is therefore it is available to subsequent SAS sessions. Unless the User libref is defined, you use a two-level name to access a file in a permanent library. The first-level name is the libref, and the second-level name is the member name.
physical filename
the name the operating system uses to identify a file.
under UNIX operating systems and derivatives, the facility that links one command to another so that the standard output of one becomes the standard input of the other.
PMENU facility
a menuing system in SAS that is used instead of the command line as a way to execute commands. The PMENU facility consists of a menu bar, pull-down menus , and dialog boxes.
pop-up menu
a menu that appears when requested . Pop-up menus are context-specific, depending on which window is active and on the cursor location.
primary windows
in the SAS windowing environment, the PROGRAM EDITOR, LOG, and OUTPUT (LISTING), and OUTPUT MANAGER windows.
procedure output file
an external file that contains the result of the analysis or the report produced. Most procedures write output to the procedure output file by default. Reports that DATA steps produce using PUT statements and a FILE statement with the PRINT destination also go to this file.
process ID (PID)
a unique number assigned by the operating system to each process
Profile catalog

See Sasuser.Profile catalog.

a set of rules governing data communications between computers and peripheral devices.
pull-down menu
the list of menu item or choices that appears when you choose an item from a menu bar or from another menu.

See also PMENU facility.
