Subject:      stupid question ?

hello has anyone ever proposed to SAS inst. to avoid explicitely sorting datasets in order to perform "by" operations ? (analysis procs, proc transpose, you name the others). it could be done with an internal sorting procedure (yes, i know, in every proc) outputting the data= sas dataset to a temporary one upon which the PROC would perform the usual analysis. sorry if i ask what may seem a stupid question, but since V9 seems to be so improved and "augmentated" i was wondering if such an improvement had already been considered and somehow discarded. cheers daniele
