Subject: Re: Other uses of SAS
I did (improperly) use SAS for purposes for which a lower generation
language, like C, Fortran or Basic, would be much more appropriate, i.e.
processing (ascii) text files into text files. I did that because the code
had to be read, understood by others, transferred and validated. The
developed code would not be one to one convertable to another language and
SAS has limits and annoyances which I do not meet in C for example.
