Is this a proper way to run/execute a SAS program and then direct or create a SAS log??

mydir=/start/dir
plog=/start/log
filename=sasprog1.log
sas=/products/SAS/SASFoundation/9.2/sas

$sas <$mydir/sasprog1.sas> $plog/$filename     

Open in new window


Currently nothing happens when I execute/run my SAS program. No log file is created, but from the examples that I read before this should be working.

Any takers?
