A New SAS Tool for Checking the Log

SAS just released a new tool for checking the SAS log:

SAS Log Error Checking Tool

It only works on Windows, requiring the .NET framework, and it appears to be a separate executable from the usual SAS program. Further, it seems to only check for ERROR and WARNING messages.

As I've written before, I have a macro, CheckLog, that checks the log, too, and it runs on any operating system, can be used within a current interactive SAS session, and it appears to check for more messages. (See the CheckLog About page for more documentation.)

If anyone tries out SAS's tool, I'd love to hear a comparison of the capabilities!
