The SAS operating environment consists of three windows: the program editor window, the output window, and the log window.

The program editor window is where all SAS commmands are typed by the user. The commands are not processed by SAS until the LOCAL--SUBMIT option from the menu in the program editor window is selected.

The output window displays the results of the analysis performed by the procedures invoked in the program editor window.

The log window contains a transcript of all statements submitted for processing from the program editor window and also any error messages generated.
