dataset

Data-set parameters are used to specify SAS datasets (a.o. FITS files).

The parameter may specify an absolute or relative path. For example:

    bar.FIT
    ../foo/bar.FIT
    /data/foo/bar.FIT

There are additional parameter types which allow components of a dataset, such as blocks,tables, arrays and columns to be specified (see below).

The SAS GUI provides a special browser for examining and selecting datasets and their components.
