A Note on using SHAZAM Procedures

SHAZAM command files that use SHAZAM procedures may need a revision to the FILE PROC command. This is required to ensure that the procedure file can be located. Further details are in the chapter SHAZAM PROCEDURES.

Run SHAZAM over the Internet

The SHAZAM examples can be run over the internet from the link on the SHAZAM homepage.

Data files can be loaded with the READ command:

   READ (data/filename) variable_list / OPTIONS

where filename is the name of the data file and variable_list is the list of variable names.

SHAZAM procedures can be located by using:

   FILE PROC procs/proc_name

where proc_name is the name of the procedure file.

Upper and lower case are not interchangeable for filenames.
