Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) and SAS

Below is shown how you can extract the current Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) revision number for a given file into SAS and use it in your SAS program.

Be aware that Visual Studio 13 is used in the example below. It is uncertain if newer versions of Visual Studio will work.

%macro TFSRev(filename);

%let tfsver1=; %let tfsver2=; %let tfsver3=; /* The default path for the TF program tf.exe with Visual Studio 13. */
%let TFRev=C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE\tf.exe;

filename tfver pipe “call “”&TFRev”” hist “”&filename”” “;
data _null_;
infile tfver;
input; /* The output is in three different lines. */
put _n_ _infile_; /* Puts the three different output lines in three diffent macrovariables called tfsver1, tfsver2 and tfsver3. */
call symput(‘tfsver’ !! put(_n_,1.), _infile_);
run;

/* Suppress output from SAS. */ options nosource;
%put Extracting TFS information from: &filename;
%put; %put &tfsver1; %put &tfsver2; %put &tfsver3; option source;

%mend;
%TFSRev(C:\TEMP\sasprogram.sas);

You can now use the three diffent macrovariables called tfsver1, tfsver2 and tfsver3 in your program.
