Subject: Re: SAS products
Dear F deBeaune,
You will not be able to download the entire SAS products from the web.
However, you can call SAS Institute (919-677-8000) and request a trial
evaluation (about 60 days) for any of the SAS products you wish to test. I
believe starting with the newest version of SAS (V9), you will need Windows
NT, XP or 2000 in order to test them out. SAS V8.2 (current release) will
run on most Windows Platforms. The software will come on CDs and there will
be manuals on them as well.
Now, once the 60 day period is over, you will need to tell SAS if you want
to license or terminate the trial evaluation agreement.
Also, there is SAS LE (Learning Edition for $125.00) but it does not have
everything that SAS has in the full license. And you may wish to read the
comments that were made about SAS LE on the SCONSIG.com web site (look
under Table of Contents to find them). The SAS LE has a fixed expiration
date of December 2006 until further notice.
