In "regular" SAS I know of no operator // perhaps in IML.
You can use ?/ to represent | when system CHARCODE is "on". See example.
I don't know if this helps. If not be more specific with usage and expectation.
85 options charcode=1;
86 proc options option=charcode;
CHARCODE Uses character combinations as substitute for
special characters not on the keyboard
88 data test;
89 a = 'Hello';
90 b = 'you';
91 c = a||' '||b;
92 d = a!!' '!!b;
93 e = a?/?/' '?/?/b;
NOTE: The data set WORK.TEST has 1 observations and 5 variables.
