Thoroughly Modern SAS: The SAS Code Analyzer Helps Bring Programs Up to Date
How would one like to revive and reuse the older SAS jobs to make use of some newer capabilities? There are some easy ways to modernize the use of SAS without manually rewriting the existing SAS programs. The SAS Code Analyzer is the secret behind some new features for importing SAS code into SAS solutions such as SAS Data Integration Studio and SAS Enterprise Guide. One can also use the SAS Code Analyzer to create a version of a program to run in a distributed computing environment such as with SAS Grid Manager. This paper will provide an overview of the SAS Code Analyzer and will include some practical examples of using it to create programs for distributed parallel processing.
