A feature I'd like (more than BLOBs) is high precision decimal numbers, as implemented in REXX, Java, and Perl. It provides for as many as a billion significant digits, well beyond what anyone is likely to need, or be able to use, in SAS.

See <http://www2.hursley.ibm.com/decimal/> for more information.
