%put Hello, world! ;
is relatively easy to translate, albeit the result would perhaps be just as
wordy as the C code underlying the SAS program. Translating this:
ods html open body= rs = ... ;
proc tabulate ... ;
class a b c ;
var x y z ;
table ... a simpe table statement ... ;
ods html close ;
borders on practically (i.e. resource-wise and time-wise) nearly impossible,
even without preserving all the canned functionality the above has. Throw in
a couple of statistical procs, and the team you will have to hire to do this
plus one needed to prove the results correct will set you back to the
realization how downright cheap SAS is compared to how much it can do with
things pretty much guaranteed to not go out of kilter. Lots of COBOL shops
seem to have realized it even before circa 1999...
